WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (PRWEB) May 31, 2018
WHAT: The Better Health Conference, presented by the CT Partners for Health, a group of healthcare organizations focused on improving healthcare, is the premier New England patient engagement event that offers health professionals insights and resources from dynamic local, national and international experts to improve the quality of healthcare. This one-day, multi-track conference highlights successful strategies to deliver patient-centered care. Cigna is the lead conference sponsor. Exhibitors serving all sectors of the healthcare continuum will showcase innovative products, services, and solutions.
WHY: A cost-effective, high quality healthcare system is imperative to the residents of Connecticut, the region and the country. To achieve a system that delivers better outcomes at an affordable cost, patients need to understand their health and healthcare, and clinicians need to understand how best to work with their patients as partners. Where patients reside, their access to housing, transportation, and social services, and their lifestyle behaviors also impact health and healthcare outcomes. This year’s Better Health Conference offers healthcare providers, employers, and stakeholders a forum to discuss topics such as the social determinants of health, technology advancements, health care reform, and health equity to improve care delivery and health outcomes.
