RCHE releases spring conference summary
June 23, 2009
Following the successful spring 2009 conference, National Priorities and Goals, the Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering released a brief summary document with speaker highlights and opportunities for future progress.
The conference was based on the November 2008 report from the National Priorities Partnership (NPP), which brought together 28 national healthcare organizations to develop a handful of priority areas for research and improvement. Conference speakers addressed the six areas from the report -- patient and family engagement, population health, safety, care coordination, overuse, palliative and end-of-life care -- identifying areas that posed the greatest challenges and areas with the greatest potential for change.
Building on this conference, RCHE's fall conference will delve into greater detail about population health and care coordination. Visit the link below for conference information and registration.
