It is easy for managers, especially new ones, to be overwhelmed by the amount of information and the number of management “tools” at their disposal.
In reality, when a manager needs to focus on making simple improvements in their department, they usually just need one or two appropriate tools to get the job done. Recognizing this need, MHEI has developed a Performance Improvement Tools program that assists managers with learning and applying the most useful performance improvement tools available. Borrowing from all sources, including Lean Technology, this program keeps managers focused on making improvements that every manager ought to be able to make.

The Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights this week announced guidance and a public education campaign highlighting how federal nondiscrimination laws, such as those prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability or limited English proficiency, apply to opioid use disorder treatment and recovery services.
The new guidance complements 2017 OCR guidance clarifying how health care providers can share health information with a patient's family members, friends and legal representatives in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act when the patient may be in crisis and incapacitated, such as during an opioid overdose.
