INDIANAPOLIS -

Indiana University Health has announced the launch of the IU Health Foundation. IU Health Chief Philanthropy Officer Crystal Miller, who will be a guest this weekend on Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick, will serve as president of the statewide foundation. She says 12 hospital foundations will fall under the umbrella of the new entity as part of a system-wide integration effort.

Miller says the structure of the foundation will benefit every IU Health community with the ambitious goal of transforming Indiana into one of the healthiest states. A recent report from the United Health Foundation ranks Indiana the 39th most healthy state.

"Our new team will be able to direct the generous giving of others to help support new innovative medical treatments and programs to treat the most aggressive diseases and health challenges facing the residents of Indiana," she said. "The Foundation also will support efforts to improve hospital operations and attract and retain the most talented care professionals to serve patients."

The foundation will pursue strategic partnerships at the local and state level and take on multiple "imperatives" such as behavioral health, tobacco and opioid addiction, infant mortality and obesity.

"When you look at the number of people we serve in the state of Indiana and the footprint that we have, we actually have the ability to bring together initiatives -- and not just raise money for one (hospital foundation) in one particular area -- but to look at how we can engage both corporate, foundation and individual donors to make gifts and to donate in a way that their gift is impacting all of our hospitals," Miller said.

      Marketing and Sales Alignment – Easier Than You Think

      There was a time, and perhaps you’re still living in it, where marketing is expected to drive sales leads, conversations, magically help close deals, and all sorts of expectations a marketing team can never meet. This period exists because there is a misalignment in those expectations of what marketing should do and what sales should do. I like to start with the basics. Is your company providing a product or service? Is it easy to sell? Is it cheap? Do your customers buy once?
