It’s as easy as 1,2,3

  1. Assign a point person

    This person will be responsible for running the assessment and for inviting others at your organization to participate. This person also will serve as the single point of contact with the AHA Digital Pulse team if you need a demo of the assessment before you start, or if questions come up along the way.

  2. Identify other participants

    Typically the "point person" will identify two to four people to participate in order to evaluate how well your organization is performing today and describe the solutions and tools you are using.

    • For the AHA Digital Pulse assessment on COVID-19, we recommend tapping into your clinical leaders, including your Chief Medical Officer and Chief Nursing Officer, as well as operational leaders including those in telehealth, workforce areas

    • For the Digital Front Door we recommend you enlist leaders from Marketing, IT, Patient Experience, Strategy or Telehealth to help you complete the assessment.

  3. AHA Membership Verification

    This new tool is exclusively for AHA members. Before you get started, you’ll need to visit AHA.org and create an account on the site, if you haven’t done so already. If you have already created an account on the site you will need to make sure this account is “linked” to your AHA member organization (detailed instructions). A helpful video is also available below. If you or others in your team don't yet have AHA credentials, or you are having trouble logging in to AHA.org, contact the AHA Support Center via phone at 800-424-4301 or by email at ahahelp@aha.org.
