Linda Ellerbee to Present Keynote at URAC's Best Practices in Consumer Empowerment and Protection Awards Program
Date:2/4/2008

Journalist, author, television producer and breast cancer survivor will share her story at Best Practices Conference and Exhibit March 25-26, 2008

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- When Linda Ellerbee talks about health care, it's personal.

The individuality and humanity--the personhood--of every patient that attempts to navigate the nation's health care labyrinth is a message Ellerbee will deliver to the nation's leading health care management executives March 25. The veteran journalist, best-selling author, television producer and breast cancer survivor will give the keynote speech at URAC's Best Practices in Consumer Empowerment and Protection Conference and Exhibit at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando.

The first-of-its-kind conference will spotlight winning entries in the Best Practices Awards competition. Winners of the competition represent the nation's top programs in health care management, pharmacy benefit management, health plans and health information technology. The competition is an effort to advance best practices as it spotlights programs that are consumer-focused and that promote patient safety.

"URAC has intensified its focus on consumer empowerment and patient safety in its accreditation standards, and this conference is a stellar platform for health care management organizations to see how the best of the best are bringing safer, better quality care to their members," said Alan P. Spielman, URAC's president and CEO. "Linda Ellerbee's personal story, presented with her trademark wit, spirit and enthusiasm, will underscore the reasons we pursue this path."

For Ellerbee, the setting is ripe to remind leaders of health care management companies that patients battling a disease often feel like a cog in the health care machine instead of the person empowered to drive the process.

"If there's one thing that gets forgotten in health care, it is who owns the disease," Ellerbee
