An Executive’s Guide to Aligning Pay with Performance - Oct. 17

Hospitals are increasingly adopting sophisticated approaches to executive compensation packages to better align business strategy, organizational performance and executive pay. Designed to calibrate pay with performance, these programs can provide a powerful connection between the executive team and the board’s vision for the organization. But they are only successful when all parties fully understand how incentive goals and actual results will be evaluated and rewarded.

IHA Event Sponsor Pearl Meyer will demonstrate the best way to conduct an executive compensation performance analysis. In this complimentary webinar, expert faculty will share proven methods to:

  • Align performance and pay;

  • Set award opportunity levels;

  • Identify measures and weightings;

  • Evaluate results over multiple years; and

  • Ensure that individual total direct compensation levels are positioned appropriately against market competitors based on performance.

2019 IHA Emergency Preparedness Exercise - Nov. 6

Cyberattacks are on the rise for hospitals and health systems. In 2016, healthcare organizations were the victim of 88% of all ransomware attacks in the U.S. With a hefty recovery price tag of over $1 million per attack, healthcare facilities must fortify their strategies to avoid being an easy target. On November 6, IHA’s annual Emergency Preparedness Exercise will simulate a cyberattack and its impact on a healthcare organization’s ability to maintain an effective environment of care with a significant impact to facility infrastructure.

Experience this full-scale, state-wide simulation in a live, interactive webinar exclusively for our membership. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a specialized inject track that focuses on facility evacuation and management of functional needs populations, including pediatric patients. With hospitals particularly vulnerable to a cyberattack, this program will help your hospital address all possible cyber weaknesses and shore up overall cyber preparedness.

Your organization will benefit from:

  • Strategies on enhancing your hospital’s ability to customize injects to meet specific, hospital, healthcare system or regional demands;

  • Lessons on improving capacity and capability to prepare for and respond to incidents that stress normal hospital daily operations; and

  • Participation at the functional level, which assists in meeting the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services requirement for preparedness exercise participation.

To save you time, IHA will complete all the required Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) documents on your behalf.
