Rockville, MD (PRWEB) March 18, 2011
Dorland Health will host the first Leadership Summit on May 11, 2011 in Washington DC at the National Press Club for members of the care coordination team to facilitate a cohesive bond between professionals who make up the care coordination team through active learning and networking and sharing. The Leadership Summit brings together case/care managers, medical directors, clinical nurses, social workers, behavioral, rehabilitation and other leaders responsible for care coordination, patient and family education and empowerment, and transitions of care--to learn, network and share strategies they will take back to their individual organizations to enhance their programs as well as add to their own professional development.
The Leadership Summit will convene a faculty at the center of healthcare innovations who will share information on the power of collaboration, share new tools that will aid providers in delivering care that is based on evidence, and introduce cutting-edge technologies that are in many ways redefining and enhancing the way care is being delivered to meet the individual healthcare needs of consumers.
The morning of the Leadership Summit will open with a keynote presentation from Richard Bankowitz, MD, the chief medical officer of one of the largest healthcare alliances in the country, representing more than 2,500 hospitals and 72,000 other healthcare sites. Dr. Bankowitz’s unique insight will provide the audience with an unparalleled look into how the highest-performing healthcare systems are improving care while containing healthcare costs. The afternoon keynote offers a glimpse into one of the most incisive healthcare policy groups in the nation. Deborah Trautman, executive director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Policy and Healthcare Transformation, will offer a bird's-eye view of the intricate world of health policy - and the leadership qualities members of the care coordination team need to possess to influence health policy.
A morning time slot is set aside for faculty and peers to brainstorm and share ideas on pressing, every day challenges leaders share that impact productivity and outcomes that demonstrate the value their teams bring to the industry.
