strategicplanningMD, the leading provider of strategic planning software to healthcare organizations, today announced that the Illinois Hospital Association has adopted its Execution Management System, which includes a suite of Web-based applications coupled with consulting services and a variety of operational assessments. The Illinois Hospital Association represents and is an advocate for 200 Illinois hospitals and health systems and the patients and communities they serve.
In an effort to assist hospital associations with managing the myriad of issues that comprise the various state and federal health care agendas, strategicplanningMD has offered to each association a package of free software and services that, nationally, represent a $2.5 million investment. The Illinois Hospital Association joins a growing number of state associations to take advantage of this opportunity.
“The Illinois Hospital Association is one of the leading and most progressive state hospital associations in the country,” said John Tolmie, chief operating officer of strategicplanningMD. “To be able to assist its management team with tackling important issues confronting the state is a great opportunity, and by providing the Association with the technology and services that will help foster strategic planning development and execution, we can play a small role in the future of healthcare in Illinois.”
strategicplanningMD’s offer to the state hospital associations includes:
- Free use of StrategyPlanner, a revolutionary Web-based software application that allows organizations to develop, monitor, and execute short- and long-range plans, with a focus on transforming organizational goals into meaningful results.
- Pro-bono onsite support from a senior level consultant to help create and implement the most viable and actionable plans 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.
- Ongoing offsite support and guidance to enable the full use of the tools contained in StrategyPlanner.
