The Cleveland Clinic (Ohio) will host current and future healthcare decision-making leaders from the Army, Navy and Air Force as part of the Falls Church, Va.-based Military Health System’s (MHS) Traveling Fellowship Program.

According to the hospital, Cleveland Clinic was selected for its care model, patient-centered infrastructure, and emphasis on the patient experience. The hospital has also worked closely with the Department of Defense on various programs to benefit soldiers.

The goal of the Fellowship program is to better prepare MHS senior leaders to discuss and collaborate with their colleagues in the civilian sector. Themes covered during the visit will include transformational leadership and culture, reengineered clinical and administrative processes and infrastructure.

Earlier this week, the MHS Fellows were on site at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

A Department of Defense enterprise, MHS is a partnership of medical educators, researchers, and healthcare providers and their support personnel worldwide.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
