Programs & Courses

Act Now: Support CMS in Reducing Hospital Emissions!

For the first time, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed collecting, monitoring, assessing, and addressing hospital emissions. It’s a pivotal move towards regulating greenhouse gas production in healthcare, an industry responsible for approximately 8.5% of US emissions. The TEAM Decarbonization and Resilience Initiative is a voluntary program recently announced by the CMS Innovation Center (CMMI) as part of the proposed Transforming Episode Accountability Model (TEAM). The Initiative has two elements: 

  1. Voluntary reporting on metrics in four priority areas (organizational, building energy, anesthetic gas and transportation). 
  2. Technical assistance with reducing emissions. In addition, hospital participants may receive CMS recognition. 

The Initiative will help advance low-emissions, resilient health care across the U.S. Health professionals are critical in communicating to CMS that this Initiative is a necessary step toward improving patient outcomes, reducing emissions, and building climate-resilient hospitals. CMS needs to hear from health professionals like you. The comment period is open until June 10th, 5:00 pm ET. 

 

Climate for Health, Ambassador Training Program - This free, three-hour training equips health professionals with the knowledge, hands-on experience, and resources to speak and act confidently on climate change solutions. Three units of Continuing Medical Education or Nursing CE are available upon completion. Through the generous support of our donors, we are able to offer this course at no cost to you or the training participants.
