Rockville, MD (PRWEB) February 28, 2011
Dorland Health is proud to announce the President and CEO of the National Family Caregivers Association, Suzanne Mintz, will deliver the keynote presentation during the 2nd Annual Case In Point Platinum Awards Luncheon on May 10, 2011, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
As the healthcare industry struggles with how to move toward patient-centered care, Ms. Mintz brings her unique perspective as a caregiver and the challenges she and her husband faced as they battled his long-term chronic medical condition. She will explain the important role each case manager has in giving the patient and their caregivers a voice as they navigate the complex and fragmented healthcare system.
The Platinum Awards is an open program for organizations and individuals to demonstrate the important work being performed in the area of medical management and care coordination. Submissions are evaluated by independent judges based on the entrants’ success in critical areas, including proven outcomes production, overall provision of care, innovation and leadership. Additionally, examples of best practice highlighting an individual or program improving the delivery of care were all taken into consideration as part of the judging process.
Finalists have been named for their outstanding work across 26 categories that span the care continuum. A comprehensive list of categories and the finalists for each category can be found here http://www.dorlandhealth.com/case-in-point-platinum-awards/2011-finalists/
The Awards program culminates with a ceremony at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on May 10, 2011, where the winners will be revealed. Each award winner will receive a crystal award for their honor. Additionally, all winners and honorable mentions will be featured in the May issue of Case In Point magazine and profiled on DorlandHealth.com.
The 2nd Annual Platinum Awards Luncheon will be followed by the Dorland Health Leadership Summit, the first-of-its-kind event that will bring together current and future leaders working at the point of care to learn, network and share new ideas to advance the delivery of care.
