IHI Conversations in March

Speaking of office practices, please check out this IHI conference on March 18-20, the 13th Annual International Summit on Improving Patient Care in the Office Practice & the Community. It is especially geared towards health leaders and professionals working office practice and community settings.

My pals at IHI tell me:

Over 60 sessions will address the latest thinking and practices on topics that are crucial in today's environment.  This year’s theme is “rediscovering conversations” – the kind of real, human conversations that are at the heart of transformational care … and help create a higher standard of care that is not only patient-centered, but is truly person-centered.

Keynote speakers include:
Maureen Bisognano, President and CEO, IHI;
Donald Berwick, MD, MPP, Former Administrator, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services; and
Ellen Goodman, Pulitzer Prize-winning Columnist, Author, and Speake.

Save $100 if you enroll by February 10.  Worth it just to hear Ellen!
