Our mission is to drive excellence through innovation and performance, and our goal to work with every state hospital association is an extension of what we stand for as a company.

strategicplanningMD, the leading provider of strategic planning software to healthcare organizations, today announced that the Washington State Hospital Association has adopted its Web-based technology platform. The Association is among the first state hospital associations nationwide to take advantage of a bundled strategic planning solution offered by strategicplanningMD.

In an effort to assist hospital associations with managing the myriad issues that comprise the various state healthcare agendas, strategicplanningMD has offered to each association a package of free software and services that, nationally, represent a $2.5 million investment.

"If we can help state hospital associations develop better strategies for dealing with healthcare reform at the state and local levels," said John Tolmie, chief operation officer of strategicplanningMD, "and also help drive the successful execution of those strategies, then we will make a big impact on the future of healthcare in this country. Our mission is to drive excellence through innovation and performance, and our goal to work with every state hospital association is an extension of what we stand for as a company."

strategicplanningMD's offer to the state hospital associations include:

  • Free use of StrategyPlanner, a revolutionary Web-based software application that allows organizations to develop, monitor, and execute strategic and operational plans, with a focus on transforming organizational goals into meaningful results.
  • Pro-bono onsite support from a senior level consultant to ensure the creation and implementation of the most viable and actionable strategic plan possible.
  • Free educational seminars and workshops for association members, to share the best-practice Five-Stage Design for Strategic Planning, which is the backbone of StrategyPlanner.
