New Delhi: Recognizing the need for cross-country collaborations in the current pandemic scenario to build a future-ready healthcare ecosystem, apex healthcare body, NATHEALTH-Healthcare Federation of India has recently signed an MoU with The American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE).
Under this agreement, both federations will mutually strengthen healthcare systems by developing and providing leadership education and development experiences that will help in preparing healthcare professionals to become clinical leaders and improve patient care. The collaboration will bring in educational opportunities through in-person interactions, such as the Annual Congress on Healthcare Leadership.
The doctor-per-patient ratio and lack of skilled healthcare workers has been a long-standing structural challenge for India. While the pandemic has highlighted the need of strengthening the infrastructure in terms of beds and ICUs, developing a nationwide medical educational programme for medical professionals and healthcare workers is the need of hour. The aim of this strategic partnership is to provide a knowledge sharing platform which will enables different stakeholders to find solutions to the barriers of access to quality healthcare, ways to improve patient outcomes and attain executive positions in healthcare settings and national medical societies.
This path-breaking MOU between ACHE and NATHEALTH has the following objectives:
Build and lead effective teams and achieve high levels of inter professional engagement
Create collaborative, participatory physician, clinical, and executive partnerships built on trust to improve patient care
Become transformational physicians and clinical leaders to attain executive positions in healthcare settings and national medical societies
Collaborate on educational opportunities through virtual delivery and as appropriate, in-person interactions, such as the Annual Congress on Healthcare Leadership programmes
