Troy, Mich.—October 25, 2012 — Harmony Kinkle has been named Director of Operations for Practice Transformation Institute (PTI), an organization providing the health care community with Continuing Medical Education and customized learning programs that improve patient health outcomes and the individual care delivery experience.
Ms. Kinkle had been the Training and Education coordinator for PTI and will continue in that role. As Director of Operations, she directs and coordinates PTI’s day-to-day activities, manages staff and oversees the organization’s expansive training curriculum, which includes experiential learning programs on the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH), practice transformation, delivery system redesign, leadership and health IT. She also leads the DrFirst e-Prescribing training program for PTI and coordinates the activities of PTI’s Mackinac Learning Collaborative. The Mackinac Learning Collaborative (MLC) began in 2009 and is focused on transformation to a more patient-centric approach in small, primary care physician practices and residency programs. The majority of MLC participants seek and receive PCMH designation based on the changes they implement in their practices as a result of the MLC experience.
Ms. Kinkle received a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Walsh College in 2007.
