The Healthcare Delivery Institute at HORNE LLP recently announced the graduates of its Advanced Training Program in Healthcare Delivery Improvement. The ATP trains students, who fill roles in their health care organization ranging from clinicians to CFOs, in both the theory and methodology of continuous quality improvement in the health care environment. The program is a sister-program to Dr. Brent James’ internationally recognized Advanced Training Program at Intermountain Healthcare.
“An unprecedented focus on quality, unsustainable costs and current legislation has created highly disruptive changes in our country's health care system. As a result, health care providers will be directly impacted,” said HDI Director Thomas Prewitt, M.D. “Given HORNE’s long tenure of service and our depth of experience in the health care industry, we believe it is our responsibility to help providers prepare for the new health care delivery models of the future.”
