- Attendees at The 18th CPM Resource Center Conference Hear Recommendations for Change in the Stimulus Plan Era

The healthcare industry has a unique opportunity to make valuable use of the billions allotted for healthcare information technology transformation in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known as the "Stimulus Package," according to observations shared at the 18th CPM Resource Center (CPMRC) International Conference, held in Orlando, February 17-20, 2009. Rather than investing exclusively in new technologies, providers must simultaneously re-engineer workplace culture and patient care processes.

"We think there's an opportunity to improve patient care quality, but only if we transform how information is processed and used in clinical decision making," said Bonnie Wesorick, RN, MSN, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of CPMRC. "Investing in hardware and technology is important, but people, processes and work culture are equally important - we need to focus on balancing both sets of priorities."

The 18th Annual CPMRC International Conference was organized around the theme of "think big, take risks, and partner now." The conference included speakers such as:

    - Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D., an internationally known pediatric
      neurosurgeon recently featured in a TNT television biopic called
      "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story," starring Cuba Gooding Jr.;
    - Laura Adams, MSN, RN, President and CEO of the Rhode Island
      Quality Institute and member of the inaugural board of the American
      Health Informatics Successor, the National E-Health Collaborative;
    - Warren MacDonald, who became the first double above knee
      amputee to reach the summit of Africa's tallest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro;
      and
    - Faith Roberts, BSN, RN, CRRN, who speaks across the U.S. and
      Canada on t
