BUFFALO, NEW YORK; January 11, 2007 -The American Hospital Association (AHA) Certification Center (Chicago, IL) announced recently that Ann Victor-Lazarus has earned the designation of Certified Professional in Healthcare Risk Management (CPHRM).  The CPHRM is a national credential that distinguishes an individual as being among the elite in a critical field of healthcare management.

Ann Victor-Lazarus, MS, RN, joined ECMC Corporation in March of 2006 as Vice-President of Quality Outcomes.  She is responsible for establishing and implementing the corporate ECMC and Erie County Home (ECH) risk management programs.  She integrates risk management, quality assurance activities and assists in corporate compliance monitoring to proactively prevent loss to the health system.

Prior to coming to ECMC Corporation, Ann Victor-Lazarus worked at the Kaleida Health System in the Department of Risk Management.  She is a Registered Nurse and a graduate of Millard Fillmore Hospital of Professional Nursing.  She holds a Bachelor of Science from Daemen College and a Masters in Health Services Administration from D'Youville College.  She is a member of the American Society of Health Care Risk Management, American College of Health Care Executives, Sigma Theta Tau, District I of the New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) and an affiliate member of the Erie County Bar Association. 

To earn the CPHRM, an individual must satisfy eligibility requirements that incorporate a blend of work experience and education, agree to adhere to Professional Standards of Conduct, and pass the CPHRM Examination.  The CPHRM Examination tests knowledge required of a competent healthcare risk manager in the areas of Loss Prevention/Reduction, Claims Management, Risk Financing, Regulatory/Accreditation Compliance, Operations, and Bioethics.  The CPHRM Program supports the community of healthcare risk managers and is designed to provide an objective and rigorous assessment of professional knowledge.

The AHA Certification Center offers certification in four healthcare disciplines.  In addition to Certified Professionals in Healthcare Risk Management, the AHA Certification Center recognizes Certified Healthcare Environmental Services Professionals (CHESP), Certified Healthcare Facility Managers (CHFM), and Certified Materials & Resource Professionals (CMRP).  Further information may be obtained by calling the AHA Certification Center at 312-422-3715 or visiting the Web site of the American Hospital Association at www.aha.org.
