Resources for Candidates

Whether health care executives are actively looking for a new C-Suite opportunity or want to check out their options, it pays to stay in touch with information and opportunities offered through health care associations, think tanks and foundations, publications and government agencies. Following are some of InveniasPartners favorites:

Associations:  Look to professional and trade associations and societies for education and training, community, advocacy and thought leadership in the form of white papers, issue briefs and presentations. If you’re not already a member, consider joining at least three trade or professional groups. Balance national memberships with membership in local chapters of HFMA, HIMSS, ACHE, MGMA or other groups. Learn more health care associations here.

Foundations and Think Tanks:  From Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the National Center for Policy Analysis, to the Kaiser Foundation and RAND Health, foundations and think tanks are invaluable sources of research, policy analysis, symposia, summits and special publications. Check out organizations that reflect a core interest or trend—from women and children’s health, value-based reimbursement, to health care costs and population health. Learn more about some of the best foundations and think tanks here.

Publications and Media:  Health care publishing is no longer limited to a collection of print magazines and newsletters. From Modern Healthcare and FierceHealthcare, to Kaiser Health News and Healthcare Finance News, electronic communications and blogs are vital components of health care communications. See how media and publishing companies bridge the gap between traditional and online media. Learn more here.

Government:  Health care providers and payers can’t help but interact with local, state, and national government agencies—from HHS and AHRQ, to ONC and NIH. Discover how you can grapple with coming regulatory and legislative challenges, while tapping government resources and insights. Learn more here.
