Press Ganey and Harvard's Forces of Change Announce 2nd Annual Collaboration

SOUTH BEND, Ind., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Press Ganey Associates, Inc. and the Harvard School of Public Health's Forces of Change Program today formally announced continued collaboration through 2009. The two organizations, widely acknowledged as thought leaders in health care quality and innovation, are combining their expertise and reach to help promote productive dialogue among health care leaders about how to adapt to the changing face of health care. The collaboration will also help to educate health care leaders on strategies for improving quality and innovation in today's market.

On February 11, Press Ganey will present, "Organizational Disconnects on Patient Safety: The Importance of a Cultural Approach," through the four-part Forces of Change Virtual Seminar Series.

Following the Forces Executive Education Program on April 21-24, the Harvard School of Public Health will offer an intensive Forces of Change seminar for new and emerging health care leaders September 13-17. The program focuses on the rapidly-evolving face of health care and how leaders can strategically respond to a complex and changing health care marketplace.

"A Forces program designed specifically for high potential leaders is something that has been requested by our Forces of Change executive education alumni for several years; this new program is very much market-driven and we are delighted with how the Intensive Seminar has been received," said Harvard's David A. Shore, associate dean and founding director of the Forces of Change program.

Dean Shore further noted that "We are delighted to include insights from Harvard's Atul Gawande and Lucian Leape and industry leaders such as Press Ganey's Mel Hall. Participants gain skills required to move innovations to implementation in the Capstone Activation Workshop."

Dr. Melvin Hall, president and CEO of Press Ganey, will present a session in the Master Class on Patient Safety Improvement entitled, "Changing the Way We Think About Medical Errors: A Cultural Approach to Patient Safety." This master class also includes presentations by Lucian Leape, MD and Atul Gawande, MD.

Dr. Hall commented, "Press Ganey is excited to again work with the Harvard School of Public Health. The program always attracts key thought leaders and we are delighted to add our voice and actions to those committed to improving the delivery of health care."
