Center for Health & Medical Affairs Awarded AHRQ Contract

The Center for Health and Medical Affairs at the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business was awarded a unique contract to develop a curriculum on strategy execution by the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).  AHRQ is one of the main federal agencies implementing the Affordable Care Act, the new health care reform law.

The ability to effectively execute strategies is a challenge for most health care delivery organizations in the United States.  However, many other American business entities have developed execution tools that are effective and widely used.

The contract proposal was based on the successful educational approaches used both in the Health Care UST MBA and the Physician Leadership College programs of the Opus College of Business (OCB).

The project will involve a number of senior OCB faculty members led by principal investigator Dan McLaughlin, director of the Center for Health and Medical Affairs.
