We’ve got to find a way to cross the chasm and make a difference for the patients that we care for.
Roanoke, VA (PRWEB) August 02, 2013
The non-profit CMR Institute, a leading provider of non-brand related education for biopharmaceutical and medical device and diagnostics professionals, will host the first ever conference focusing on collaboration between Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and industry partners. ACOs and Industry: The Collaboration Imperative will take place at the Sofitel Hotel in Philadelphia, Penn. on October 10 – 11, 2013.
ACOs and their industry partners all want the same thing: to find ways to collaborate in a mutually beneficial way. Dr. Anthony Slonim, executive vice president and chief medical officer of Barnabas Health and CMR Institute’s board chair, expects attendees to work together with ACO leaders in a unique and interactive learning environment. "We’ve got to find a way to cross the chasm and make a difference for the patients that we care for," he noted.
ACOs and Industry: The Collaboration Imperative is gathering ACO and other cross-industry thought leaders who are addressing the constantly changing face of healthcare in the United States.
"More than 40 years ago, physicians and pharmaceutical companies came together to form the non-profit CMR Institute in order to strengthen the relationship between industry and physicians," said Michelle O’Connor, president and CEO of CMR Institute. "This conference expands on that original mission. It will provide ACO leaders and industry executives an opportunity to share ideas and brainstorm solutions to meet the new challenges inherent with healthcare reform."
