Fall Town Halls: Investing In MHRI

Thank you to all who were able to join us at a town hall! With so much going on in our business lives, it’s nice to be able to take some time and touch base on the progress we are making as a whole.

Each town hall, we try to include a safety moment that reflects MHRI as a whole. It was great to be able to open our town halls recognizing the great work of some of our associates. The following HeRO Awards were presented at the town halls. Thank you all for your commitment to HRO and patient safety, no matter your role at MedStar.

  • HeRO Good Catch Award: Ron M. Migues
  • Safety Coach HeRO Award: Rachel Campbell, RN
  • HeRO Non-clinical Award: Sarah Wright-Gaul
  • Nursing HeRO Award: Jean Flack, RN
  • Team HeRO Good Catch Award: Research Development, Planning, and Communications
Mary Anne Hinkson and Allison Keuthen were on hand to present the status of OnCore implementation and why it is so important to our associates. Thanks to those associates who shared why OnCore is helping them with their day-to-day. I was pleased to share the progress we are making in implementing a clinical pharmacy system and a new IRB program. These investments in our IT infrastructure may not affect your role specifically, but they will allow for MHRI associates to run more smoothly and efficiently.
Across the system, the first two weeks of October are the Power to Heal campaign. Thank you to all of you who have donated and thank you ALL for being ambassadors of research. We were joined by Dr. Avi Giladi and Dr. Jessica Galagarra, who shared the impact of the New Investigator fund on their research.
There were lots of updates, so be sure to check for the email that went out from Eva Hochberger for the details on the following items: CMS training, open enrollment, year-end celebrations, and flu shots.
If you have any additional questions or feedback, please contact me or use the 2-Way Communication feature on StarPort. We look forward to seeing you all in the spring!
