CINHC Has A New Name!
As of the beginning of September 2015, we are pleased to share that the California Institute for Nursing & Health Care has a new name: HealthImpact. Since 2001, we have brought together partners in nursing practice, academia, policy and the health care industry to develop unified strategies to enhance the well-being of Californians through innovation, interprofessional leadership, and nursing excellence. As an organization supporting more than 400,000 nurses, we develop practical solutions to improve the health of Californians. CCPS is one of the multiple programs HealthImpact has launched.
In this time of rapid change in health care, HealthImpact has become more agile and responsive. We continue to collaborate with a wide range of partners, designing and creating practical solutions to better prepare nurses for the day-to-day challenges they face. We thank you for your continued partnership and encourage you to visit our new website at www.healthimpact.org.
Bay Area News and Updates
With our partners at the FCCC, the BANRC has received funding to redesign CCPS to better meets changing needs as the health care environment changes. In m
id-October 2015, we are conducting a follow up meeting to a focus group held December 2014, to gather input for how to expand and improve tool functionality. The CCPS team has developed a concept for a new and improved tool, using feedback from the December focus group and input we collect regularly from users across the state and in other markets across the country. We will present a proposed new structure, intended to facilitate user-friendliness, expansion to placements in non-acute settings, and allied health placements. We are excited to gather feedback from this focus group, to inform the next phase of planning. Improvements to the CCPS tool function and design resulting from this grant funded project will benefit system improvements overall across regions using CCPS. For recommendations
about system improvements, please contact Nikki West at Nikki@healthimpact.org
