InterOptimability Training Curriculum
& Certification (ITCC) Program

The Stewards of Change Institute’s new InterOptimability Training and Certification program incorporates the knowledge. ITCC incorporates the knowledge and tools accumulated over the past decade through our work with thousands of HHS leaders, academic partners and industry experts. It is designed to prepare your workforce – executives, program managers, supervisors and case workers – to achieve 21st Century learning standards.

InterOptimability (think Interoperability + Optimization) is a unique methodology we created to build competencies to meet the demands of an increasingly complex, interconnected field. This methodology is at the heart of ITCC, which offers “training on demand” through its state-of-the-art, web-based platform. ITCC includes certification of each of your trained personnel as an InterOptimability Professional Expert (IPE) – and, more broadly, it enables your organization to prepare for the convergence of programs that span the HHS continuum and help you build capacity to embrace the Social Determinants of Health and Well-Being.

Our vision, like yours, is to accelerate progress toward achieving health equity and better outcomes for communities across our country. Here’s how the innovative ITCC program aims to do that:
