The Geneia Institute Offers Expert Training To 'Frontline' Medical Staff
CONCORD, N.H., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Geneia today announced the launch of The Geneia Institute – the Geneia arm committed to helping health care providers and their frontline professionals successfully navigate health care reform to improve patient care and better manage health care costs. The Geneia Institute also launched its new website at www.GeneiaInstitute.com to serve as an online destination for health care organizations around the country.
"The only way health care reform will be successful is if the frontline staff are trained to seize the opportunities it presents," said Heather Lavoie, President of the Geneia Institute. "These critical team members must be equipped to navigate this new world to simultaneously provide better care and manage costs. And that's what The Geneia Institute does."
"Already The Geneia Institute is a go-to resource for health care organizations that understand the value of providing their frontline medical teams with latest techniques in patient communication, care coordination, data analytics, and population health management," said Lavoie. "We have already developed great partnerships and are eager to continue providing the training that results in better care for patients."
The Geneia Institute has hit the ground running by establishing strong relationships in the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions. In September, The Geneia Institute announced its partnership with the Massachusetts Hospital Association and Villanova College of Nursing to host a 10-week population health management course for nurses and social workers. Also in September, The Geneia Institute kicked off its partnership with the Hamilton Heath Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center in Harrisburg, Pa., to help it succeed as a patient-centered medical home by improving the quality of care and lowering the cost to patients. In addition, The Geneia Institute has also sponsored events such as the New Hampshire Business Review Health Care Forum and the Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers Conference.
"The Geneia Institute is a top-notch partner," said Kirsten Singleton, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Hospital Association Center for Education and Professional Development. "They're professional, responsive, client-focused, and most importantly, their curriculum is innovative, engaging and just the kind of skills-based education that health care organizations and their staffs need to succeed in today's rapidly changing environment."
"At the Hamilton Health Center, we have embraced the patient-centered medical home because we believe that the model, if implemented effectively, will help us to better serve our patients," said Jeannine Peterson, CEO of Hamilton Health Center. "The Geneia Institute's work to prepare and train our staff ensure that we are well-positioned to succeed."
The Geneia Institute boasts an expert staff of nearly 200 seasoned professionals that serve as educators and consultants to a variety of health care providers based on their specific organizational needs. The Geneia Institute offers educational programs for individuals at all levels within a health care organization, including nurses, social workers, care team members, physicians, managers, executive leadership, and boards of directors.
