Tuesday, May 7 - Wednesday, May 8, 2013
Today healthcare activity accounts for a large and potentially calamitous amount of U.S. economic spending. Whether or not we chose to be here, this wave of increasing costs is placing the entire healthcare system on the brink of a tipping point.
The most pressing goal facing healthcare practitioners, policymakers, payers and organizations is to plant the seeds that will create a sustainable healthcare system, not just for today and tomorrow but for long into the future.
The 5th Care Coordination Summit firmly embraces these challenges and creates a dynamic environment where leaders and frontline practitioners can discover practical solutions to the main issues facing their organizations and healthcare as a whole.
With its mission of Paving the Way Toward a Sustainable Healthcare System, the Care Coordination Summit delivers critical intelligence, resources, case studies, best practices and real working models to case managers and professionals involved in care coordination as they seek to address challenges, reduce costs, optimize the delivery of care and create viable payment structures.
New this year, the Care Coordination Summit adjoins the Case In Point Platinum Awards show, which recognizes the cutting-edge work that case management and care coordination professionals are achieving throughout the care continuum.
The Care Coordination Summit takes place at the Gaylord National Resort in Washington, D.C., from May 7-8, 2013, situating attendees in the cradle of our nation’s capital where you can recharge as you discover actionable ways to make a difference that will help ensure a sustainable healthcare system.

|I just wanted to let you know that it was great to be a part of the Care Coordination Summit and to hear how hospitals around the country are evolving their Care Coordination practices to align with the forthcoming challenges of healthcare reform. My company focuses our Care Coordination methodology mainly on the inpatient setting and working to coordinate patients’ care while still in the hospital. I found it to be very informative and insightful to hear about the Care Coordination efforts that are taking place outside of these hospitals, with a focus on decreasing readmissions.
Thank you so much for putting on such a wonderful and insightful gathering, and I look forward to hear what Dorland Health has to offer going forward.
