Health care is in the midst of unprecedented change. Novel influences like the landmark health reform bill, incentives derived from the federal stimulus package, redefined roles and disciplines, and emerging models of care are all proving to be disruptive forces in our care delivery system.
For those involved in the coordination of care—practicing physicians, medical directors, case/care managers, social workers, discharge planners, hospital administrators, senior management, employers and related medical management professionals—these changes may be industry-changing, but they also present a golden opportunity to improve outcomes, reduce costs, improve patient care, smooth transitions and boost your organization’s bottom line.
Course Description and Statement of Need
The Dorland Health Care Coordination Summit sets its sights on these crucial areas of care management. The latest trends, opportunities and strategies across a range of topics—from health IT and patient-centered care to care transitions and quality improvement initiatives—will be defined and discussed at length to equip you with the knowledge and resources you need to provide the newest, safest and most cost-effective care to your patients.
Dr. Don Berwick, the current head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and the former president of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, said it best: “Providing venues where professionals can come together and exchange ideas allows for improvement in quality, patient safety, teamwork, leadership and patient centered care." By focusing on the interdisciplinary team, the Care Coordination Summit presents a unique networking forum where diverse disciplines can interact, share success stories, and ultimately enhance the strength of team-based, patient-centered care. It is a true cross-pollination of best-practice efforts.
By attending the Care Coordination Summit, you will learn how to:
- Describe the advances that personalized medicine will bring to the industry, as well as the benefits it will have on patients.
- Integrate strategies to capitalize on advancements in health IT to streamline care coordination and communication.
- Discuss emerging models and information that assists members of the care coordination team to improve quality while containing healthcare costs.
- Employ models of care that are truly revolutionizing the care management arena.
- Apply industry-leading techniques to optimize transitions of care.
- Implement new models of care based on prevention-based practice in order to lower healthcare costs.
- Understand best practices in varying models of care coordination and know how to implement them to improve outcomes.
