Strategic Planning Meeting

Thank you for joining the conversation!

COAP has examined several questions and concerns this year that point toward the need for strategic planning.

Questions like:

  • What does program growth look like?
  • If COAP is a regional collaborative, how do we define region? How do we better collaborate?
  • What does COAP provide that differentiates us from ACC and STS?
  • What should we do more of/ less of?
  • How do we better use COAP data?
  • Do we move beyond a procedural registry?
  • Do we expand to include pre– and post-hospital data?
  • Does COAP provide a big carrot, a big stick, or both?

And of course all these questions, and more, are raised in a rapidly changing health care environment where hospitals are pressed to demonstrate quality while being squeezed financially. To remain relevant and valuable, it’s essential that COAP grapple with these questions.

To help shape the Strategic Planning Meeting (scheduled for FEBRUARY 15, 2017, 3-7PM) please share your ideas, your thoughts on the above questions, or pose your own questions to the group by Commenting Below.

Check back often and keep the conversation going!

    Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more,
    Men were deceivers ever;
    One foot in sea, and one on shore,
    To one thing constant never.
    Then sigh not so,
    But let them go,
    And be you blith and bonny,
    Converting all your sounds of woe
    Into Hey nonny, nonny.

    Sing no more ditties, sing no mo
    Of dumps so dull and heavy;
    The fraud of men was ever so,
    Since summer first was leavy.
    Then sigh not so,
    But let them go,
    And be you blith and bonny,
    Converting all your sounds of woe
    Into Hey nonny, nonny.
