Job Description: Chief Executive Officer Position Profile 2021 THE OPPORTUNITY: With the anticipated retirement of our current Chief Executive Officer, CALTCM is seeking an exceptional leader to guide our efforts to transform Post-Acute/and Long-Term Care (PALTC) in California. This individual will carry out the mission of CALTCM of promoting quality patient care across the long-term care continuum, including skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities, and beyond, through medical leadership and education. CALTCM is the medical voice of long-term care in California. We promote excellent and individualized medical care via an interprofessional team approach that integrates developments in medical science with personalized care. We provide quality education with emphasis on implementation and support of the Quality Assurance/Performance Improvement (QAPI) process. Through our annual educational Summit, our branded SNF 2.0® mentoring program, our branded Leadership and Management in Geriatrics (LMG) course, and our bimonthly newsletter, the “WAVE”, we promote effective leadership, ethical care delivery, overall health equity, and the rights of our patients. ORGANIZATIONAL OVERVIEW: We began our work in 1975 as CAMD (California Association of Medical Directors) and changed our name in 2000 to CALTCM to reflect our commitment to an interprofessional and collaborative approach to accomplishing our Mission and Vision. We are a 501 C (3) non-profit organization with an active board of directors, and a part-time CEO. Our membership has averaged about 350 in recent years. We work through our committees which include: Executive, Education, Clinical Practice, Membership, Public Policy, WAVE, Wellness, Nomination and Finance. We are a state chapter of AMDA - The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine and have working relationships with multiple state organizations and stakeholders including the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), California Department of Social Services (CDSS), California Association of Health Facilities (CAHF), Leading Age California, American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP), National Association of Directors of Nursing Administration (NADONA), the Geriatric Advanced Nurses Association (GAPNA), California Psychological Association, Alzheimer’s Association, The California Partnership to Improve Dementia Care, and the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California. As one of the first organizations in California to recognize the danger of COVID-19 to older adults in nursing homes and other congregate living settings, CALTCM launched its weekly educational webinar series providing sound clinical advice to nursing home professional so that they could keep staff and residents safe from COVID-19. In early March, we developed the quadruple aim ( ) for mitigating COVID in our facilities and then worked with CDPH on its implementation. Our leaders then began helping CDPH’s HAI Program (Healthcare Associated Infection) with twice weekly infection prevention calls and other educational initiatives. We have been able to influence some of CDPH’s guidance on other areas such as advance care planning, testing, and visitation. CALTCM has received statewide and national recognition for its leadership role throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and efforts to keep our older adults and communities safe. CALTCM is committed to knitting together state, public and private organizations to achieve our mission to promote quality and safety in nursing homes. Our organization has moved quickly to address the needs of our vulnerable elders and our providers during the pandemic. We learned from our weekly webinars and understanding of the pandemic, that our educational efforts would need to be virtual. We successfully adjusted our LMG course in July to the virtual format and received great reviews from this well attended course. Similarly, we converted our October annual Summit to the virtual format with multiple breakout rooms and good Q&A sessions. We have recently submitted a grant proposal for Civil and Monetary Penalties (CMP) funds ($3 million) to expand our LMG, SNF 2.0, and other educational programs for nursing homes, which will be well timed to piggy back on the AHRQ (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality) Project ECHO program currently becoming operational at almost all SNFs in California.
