ACC Wins Prestigious Awards For Leadership and Excellence in Education

The ACC’s COVID-19 Summer Education Series, as well as its collaborative work with Infopro Learning on NCD Academy stroke and cardiovascular disease prevention content, were recently recognized with four prestigious Brandon Hall Group Human Capital Management (HCM) Excellence Awards.  

The College’s COVID-19 Summer Education Series was recognized with a gold award in the “Best Advance For Leading Under a Crisis” category. The innovative series, which took place over a three-month period throughout the summer of 2020, provided more than 33,000 clinicians from 53 countries with open access to timely, actionable and trustworthy information on critical COVID-19-related topics impacting both the clinical and operational aspects of providing care, as well as the health and well-being of clinicians and patients.

The ACC’s collaborative efforts with Infopro Learning to address cardiovascular disease and stroke prevention around the world through the NCD Academy received two gold awards and one bronze award in the categories of “Best Unique or Innovative Learning and Development Program,” “Best Use of Mobile Learning,” and “Best Advance in Custom Content,” respectively. NCD Academy is aimed at equipping primary health care providers around the world with high-quality continuing education on prevention and care of cardiovascular diseases. A lofty goal requiring an innovative approach as well as the elimination of barriers, such as computers and internet accessibility. With a mix of peer-reviewed literature, national registry data, practice guidelines, insights from cardiology experts, as well as data from recent research, the NCD Academy online learning program aims to address cognitive knowledge and skills gaps in primary care providers in preventing and treating cardiovascular disease.

“These prestigious awards are testament to the innovation, forward-thinking vision, collaboration and professionalism on the part of ACC’s member leaders, volunteers and staff,” said ACC CEO Cathleen C. Gates. “Together we are making real progress towards our Vision of a future where innovation and knowledge optimize cardiovascular patient care and outcomes.”

“Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in 2021 provide much-needed and well-deserved recognition to organizations that went above and beyond to support their stakeholders during the unprecedented disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Brandon Hall Group COO Rachel Cooke. “The awards provide validation of best practices in all areas of HCM at a time when they have never been more important to employers, employees and customers.” Award winners are scheduled to be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference in February 2022.
