MHA students bring home the gold at North Texas Case Competition
A team of UNT Health Science Center MHA students has taken the top prize at this year’s American College of Healthcare Executives North Texas (ACHENTX) Case Competition.
Tasked with a real-world challenge, much like projects they will take on in their future careers as health care leaders, teams from UNTHSC and other North Texas universities went head to head on a case for “Humana’s Bold Goal: 20 Percent Healthier by 2020.”
The case focused on Humana’s plan to improve health in the communities it serves and make it easy for people to achieve their best health. Students were asked to develop and present a proposal for measuring the business performance and clinical progress along the way.
Members of the UNTHSC winning team were Crystal Bui, Liana Cherian, Monica Kovuri, Laci Sherman and Ela Vashishtha.
The team was coached by Paul Aslin, FACHE, Senior Vice President and Chief Population Officer with Wise Health System.
The win has special significance for Vashishtha, who has presented at three case competitions this year, regionally, statewide and nationally. In April, she was on the UNTHSC team that won for their “Transforming Galveston” proposal at the George McMillan Fleming Center for Healthcare Management’s annual student challenge event in Houston.
