Dorland Health Announces the 5th Care Coordination Summit in Washington, D.C., on May 7-8

Rockville, Md. (PRWEB) February 11, 2013

The Care Coordination Summit is designed for case management professionals and all members of the care coordination team, who are seeking to address the changing ways in which healthcare is delivered and paid for throughout the continuum as the Affordable Care Act moves forward. Throughout the country, providers and payers involved in care coordination are working to ensure that all patients have access to safe, quality, cost-effective care in a potentially dire environment of increased spending that threatens the national economy.

“The Care Coordination Summit delivers insights, case studies and actionable strategies from frontline leaders working across health plans, hospitals, nonprofits and other points of care that leaders in care coordination can use to improve their practice, positively influence the health of their organization, combat rising cost shares and penalties, and advance the delivery of care,” said Anne Llewellyn, RN-BC, MS, BHSA, CCM, CRRN, editor in chief of Dorland Health and chair of the event.

The Summit brings together a diverse group of speakers from all slices of healthcare during this two-day event, which is designed to shed light on issues related to the finances and quality of care in the expansive areas of care coordination. Seeking to improve quality and reduce costs, the Summit focuses on some of the top-trending areas that impact modern healthcare infrastructure, including the re-design of the delivery of care, shared decision making, innovations leading to reducing waste, patient and family engagement, and ways in which organizations are improving the quality of care across the care continuum.

The day’s discussions will be punctuated by three keynote addresses: Eileen Carlson, JD, RN, Associate Director of Government Affairs, American Nurses Association, on the new reimbursement policies governing transitions of care; Dr. Peter Goldbach, Chief Medical Officer of Health Dialog, on the growing domain of shared decision making; and Holly A. Toomey, RN, BSHM, Associate Vice President, Care Management Strategy, McKesson Health Solutions, whose opening session will set the stage of healthcare at “the tipping point.”.

The 2013 Care Coordination Summit covers practical topics for professionals working in the field of managed care, acute care, the military, long-term care, behavioral health, rehabilitation, home care, or other settings through which consumer’s access healthcare.

The only event designed for all members of the care coordination team, the Care Coordination Summit provides participants with the insight, strategies and tactics to improve the performance of their organization so as to improve the quality of care while reducing costs.
