Save the Date: SCHA & SC ACHE Annual Meeting / January 29-30, 2013

Mark your calendars to attend the SCHA and SC ACHE Annual Meetings to be held January 29-30, 2014 at the Columbia Marriott. For 2014 the SC ACHE Annual Meeting, which has traditionally been an early morning breakfast meeting, will now be offered as a luncheon on January 29. Also, based on overwhelmingly positive response from 2013, a 3-hr ACHE Face-to-Face session (for 3 hours of ACHE Face-to-Face credits) will immediately follow the SC ACHE Annual Meeting luncheon. The featured speaker for the 3-hr session is Jake Poore, President & Chief Experience Officer with Integrated Loyalty Systems.JakePoore

Unlike typical speakers, Jake Poore spends most of his time in the trenches of healthcare institutions. You may find him shadowing a physician in the emergency department, learning of the needs of the sterile processing department, or the delivering food with the food service team. As Founder and President of ILS, Jake knows what it takes to create and maintain a world-class service organization. He should… he spent nearly two decades at the Walt Disney Company helping to train and align 65,000 employees toward one end in mind: creating memorable experiences for individuals, not masses.

Jake has spent the past 15 years fine tuning those blueprints by adding best practices from leaders in service, like Southwest Airlines and Ritz-Carlton Hotels, and applying them to more than 250 top healthcare organizations. Through leadership retreats and hands-on workshops, Jake and his team of experts are dedicated to helping organizations achieve their goals in the areas of designing and executing cultural blueprints, defining the companies’ service strategy and mapping out and operationalizing the ideal customer and employee experience.

In 2001, Jake launched Integrated Loyalty Systems, Inc., and for the past 12 years, Jake and Team ILS have helped many healthcare organizations make successful cultural transformations including: Kaiser Permanente, Cigna Medical Group, Vanguard Health System, Baystate Health, Penn Medicine, Ochsner Health System, and National Rehabilitation Hospital. In addition, ILS has contributed to creating patient-centric architectural blueprints for organizations like the University of Colorado Hospitals, Jersey Shore University Medical Center, and BJC Healthcare’s Progress West Hospital. Jake is faculty for ACHE and teaches a 2-day course on the Chief Experience Officer and patient experiences.

Jake’s session, Improving the Patient Experience to Build Customer Loyalty, has been offered at several ACHE cluster programs. The session will focus on exploring proven continuous-improvement methodologies that result in improved patient survey results and a profitable strategy for a hospital or health system.

Online registration will be available soon. For more information, visit the SCHA web calendar or contact Lara Hewitt.
