The HIFIS 4 Implementation Masterclass is a new format offered by ACRE Consulting to help communities who want to launch HIFIS 4 in their community but need some guidance on how to do that efficiently and effectively.
It is an online course that uses a variety of teaching methods and tools – including group webinars, written materials, pre-recorded videos, case studies, quizzes, assignments, sample policies and templates, and optional one-on-one coaching.
Most importantly, this course gives you a structure to your HIFIS implementation project. We know just how many steps there are, and how many moving parts there are to keep track of. It can be overwhelming. We’ve helped guide communities through all the components of a HIFIS 4 implementation, so we know what order it makes sense to cover things.
