We all need guidance and support from experts. That’s why each of our communities are led by professionals who are recognized thought leaders in their respective fields. Some moderators serve for a long term and some rotate on a regular basis. Moderators are either volunteers or receive a stipend depending on the time they are able to commit to work with the communities. Please check out our moderators page to see who they are.
There is a time, budget permitting, for attending conferences in person. But with the Internet, we have the ability listen to experts and ask them questions without having to go abroad. This is the approach we have taken with our virtual Expert Panels. They last one to two weeks, welcome a handful of renowned experts for members to ask questions of and share insights with, and are concluded with a peer-reviewed Discussion Brief that summarizes key lessons.
From vendor recommendations to lessons learned in the field, our members exchange ‘know-how’ and tips that are rarely found in traditional publications, and are often hidden in personal computers and email inboxes. Our peer-reviewed Discussion Briefs recap key lessons and references on specific health care delivery challenges that are discussed in the communities.
Although we are lucky to have access to a network of global health delivery professionals, we recognize the expertise of others and do not wish to duplicate what others have successfully achieved. This is why we partner with organizations who share our vision and complement our mission to provide additional services and content to our members.
Our communities are hosted on a platform developed in-house using Django, an open-source web application framework. This approach gives us lots of flexibility to respond to members’ needs, allows us to reduce the use of "bandwidth-hungry" features, and focus on what matters: talking and working with you to support your mission providing better health care.
