MELVILLE, N.Y., April 25, 2024 – Boise State University’s Master in Population and Health Systems Management (MPHSM) program was recognized by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) with an award sponsored by Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc.

Boise State’s MPHSM program, co-created by the university and the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), aims to support the modern needs in healthcare education through the lens of population health, risk mitigation, and finance. The curriculum works to explore the relationship between epidemiology and actuarial science in the context of population health, providing students with the business intelligence and management skills to successfully navigate the changing healthcare landscape.

CAHME is an accrediting body for academic programs that offer a professional master’s degree in healthcare management education. Every year, the organization partners with Canon Solutions America to recognize educational institutions that strive to instill ideals of sustainability and social responsibility in future healthcare leaders. This award signifies the critical role education plays in inspiring future healthcare leaders to enact positive change incorporating the ideals of cultural competency, community involvement, environmental focus, and sustainability.

“We are so proud of our program and for receiving this award,” said Dr. Jenni Gudapati, clinical associate professor and value-based healthcare program director at Boise State. “Healthcare is in a period of transformation and efforts to create a more affordable and sustainable system are needed now more than ever. Thank you to CAHME and Canon Solutions America for recognizing our dedication to teaching the next generation of healthcare leaders.”

The program helps prepare students to take on leadership roles and serve as executive-level managers in evolving health systems, with the curriculum developed to assist in providing instruction to serve in a variety of roles as a health professional in both the public and private sectors.

“We are honored to be recognized with Boise State University for this award,” said HFMA Director, Partnership Relationships and Chief Partnership Executive Todd Nelson. “Sustainability has become a touchstone of contemporary healthcare management education and practice. Our students graduate with the skills needed to help organizations successfully navigate this transformational period in healthcare and achieve sustainability.”

Canon Solutions America’s history and development as a business relies heavily on the Canon corporate DNA, which is embodied in the philosophy of Kyosei – all people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future. The core principles of Kyosei are a respect for humanity, an emphasis on technology’s ability to improve the world, and the importance of fostering an enterprising spirit.

Boise State’s MPHSM program ties into that philosophy with its focus on health system sustainability, encouraging students to create capstone projects that relate to care delivery, cost-effectiveness, health policy, human behavior, social determinants, and the creation of best patient outcomes.

“Boise State University’s Master in Population and Health Systems Management program continues to serve an important role in creating an interactive learning community dedicated to training healthcare innovators who can help transform the industry, and we are proud to see their efforts rewarded with recognition from CAHME,” said Peter P. Kowalczuk, president of Canon Solutions America. “We congratulate Boise State on this prestigious honor.”
