Rockville, MD (PRWEB) July 19, 2010
Dorland Health’s Care Coordination Summit: Improving Practice in a Time of Change, will be held October 5th from 8:30 am to 5:15pm at the National Press Club, Washington, DC. This summit brings together thought leaders and experts in the healthcare field to discuss areas crucial to care management. Representatives from leading healthcare organizations such as Personalized Medicine Coalition, Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, Geisinger Health Plan, Kaiser Permanente and others will come together to share the latest trends, opportunities and strategies—from health IT and patient-centered care, to care transitions and quality improvement initiatives.
Dorland Health’s Care Coordination Summit is designed to provide information on the dynamic changes impacting those involved in the coordination of care-- physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, case/care managers, social workers, discharge planners, senior leadership and related medical management professionals --and to recognize opportunities from current and anticipated changes in healthcare. “Improving patient care, ensuring safe and effective transitions of care, and reducing errors that impact operating costs are well within our reach”, says Anne Llewellyn, Conference Chairwoman and Editor in Chief, Case Management Products and Services.

Presented by the Dorland Health, and Case In Point, two trusted sources on healthcare and case management, the Care Coordination Summit will open with a keynote from Edward Abrahams, PhD who will discuss the changing landscape of personalized medicine. Subsequent speakers will address topics such as utilizing electronic medical records, how to be a catalyst in reducing medical errors and impacting patient outcomes, new models of care that are currently in demonstration projects, and cost-containment measures and more. Attendees will leave this one-day summit equipped with a smarter, more cost-effective approach to care management.
The Dorland Health People Awards will be held the day before the Summit, on October 4th at the National Press Club. From addiction counselors and ethicists to case managers and social workers, the Dorland Health People Awards honor the diligent, the influential—in short, the special—practitioners who coordinate and provide care, with special emphasis placed on professionals who spearhead efforts to make healthcare safe, quality-driven and cost-effective for all. Award winners will be announced amid a banquet and celebration.
