The College is an incorporated not-for-profit charity with approximately 2500 members and plays an important role in the health system. It is well known that the quality of management and leadership in the health system has a substantial and tangible effect on patient outcomes and experiences, healthcare costs and the satisfaction of the health workforce. The College plays an integral role in creating, developing and supporting the leaders and managers of the health system with a view to create better health for all.
Better leadership. Healthier communities.
Recognise, develop and support effective health leadership and management to deliver quality services and improve health and wellbeing.
At its meeting in August 2016 the Board of the College approved the ACHSM Master Health Services Management Competency Framework for application across a wide span of College programs and activities.
This Master Framework is based on the set of competencies developed through an international consensus process by a Global Consortium under the sponsorship of the International Hospital Federation (IHF) and adopted in 2015. The global work is continuing under a special interest group (SIG) of the IHF known as the IHF-SIG Healthcare Management. A local gap analysis and consensus process was subsequently implemented by the ACHSM during 2015 and 2016 to adapt the Global Competency Directory to the Asia Pacific context.
