Grand Rapids, MI Sept. 1, 2010 CPM Resource Center (CPMRC), an Elsevier company and leader in assisting healthcare organizations improve practice at the point of care, today announced that its 19th International Conference will take place Jan. 19-22, 2011, at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero in San Francisco. The conference will highlight the innovations and substantial progress healthcare professionals are making in bridging evidence-based clinical content, partnerships and technology for a healthy integrated healthcare system.
"The essence of transformation and the real innovation and hope for healthcare will be brought to life by our conference presenters, the leaders who have deeply studied and implemented major sustainable change within their organizations," said Diane Hanson, RN, BSN, MM, Executive Vice President and General Manager, CPMRC. "Powerful stories, new tools and methodologies will be shared to deepen insights and accelerate healthcare transformation outcomes."
Executive leaders, clinicians, researchers, educators and innovators will be able to network and actively engage with key decision makers and discuss professional practice, culture transformation, and meaningful health information technology adoption in a dynamic conference community, representing nearly 300 healthcare settings.
The 19th International Conference will include keynote addresses by:
In addition, attendees can look forward to more than 60 member presentations and educational workshops covering a wide range of topics related to practice, education, technology adoption, physician and team engagement, evidence-based tools and outcomes. New at the 2011 conference is the Innovation Jamboree, an opportunity for attendees to share and test innovations about healthcare, culture, professional practice and technology.
"The passing of ARRA and Healthcare Reform calls for new innovations. We need innovation in bettering health professions education, in achieving clinical integration across the continuum of care, in accelerating HIT adoption, and perhaps most importantly, in achieving meaningful use criteria moving forward," said Dr. Delaney. "Participants will learn the latest innovative efforts that are required for sustainable healthcare transformation and ways of achieving greater quality of care."
Attendees will include members of diverse rural, community, academic and health system hospitals and healthcare organizations that are active members of the CPMRC International Consortium, as well as others interested in creating the best places to give and receive healthcare.
