Hi Team!

There is more to improving the health of a community than simply providing high-quality medical care. And, as Cincinnati’s fourth-largest employer, TriHealth has both the opportunity and the obligation to leverage its size, reputation and leadership position to inspire positive change and improve lives in so many ways beyond traditional healthcare delivery. As evidence of this commitment, we are launching two important and exciting community initiatives this month.

The first is the School-to-Work Program – funded initially through a bi3 (Bethesda Inc.) grant –which will provide career development opportunities and mentoring by TriHealth team members to 50 students from Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) over the next three years. (Click here to view a video and learn more). The goal of the School to-Work Program is to inspire and encourage a diverse group of high school students (in many cases, those coming from disadvantaged and potentially at-risk backgrounds) to pursue careers in healthcare by giving them real-world work experience and mentorship at TriHealth during their junior and senior years. This program will serve as a model workforce development initiative and another important and authentic TriHealth and bi3 community collaboration.

The second program is Early Learning City, and it launches this month as well. I plan to devote a portion of next Week’s Update to this topic, so stay tuned….

These are just two examples of the countless ways TriHealth and our team members live our values as we strive to make our community a better, brighter place for all.

Message for Huddles: Apparent Cause Analysis
Apparent Cause Analysis is a limited investigation to systematically figure out what happened and how to fix it. The ACA process can be used for any type of incident, but is most appropriate for less-significant events, such as precursor or near-miss events. By utilizing the ACA process, we can identify system process failures and help to better “mistake-proof” standardized practices. To learn more about our ACA tool, visit Bridge under Safety and Reliability.
