Description

2019 Summit Series, presented by Great Lakes Health Connect

The barriers that stand between current state and optimal state of the healthcare system are complicated and numerous. These barriers prevent organizations and providers from delivering, coordinating, and tracking patient care. By harnessing the power of technology and relationships, we can break down those barriers.

Organizations, departments, teams, and individuals must create and exude a culture that rewards creativity, excellence, and flexibility. By connecting these cultures of care, we can achieve a fully sustainable and integrated healthcare ecosystem.

These observations about the healthcare industry are what inspired the theme of the 2019 Summit Series … “Breaking down barriers – connecting cultures of healthcare.”

Current participants and GLHC representatives will share best practices, creative and innovative uses of technology, and will describe how health information technology is helping their organizations improve quality and the value of healthcare.

Social Determinants of Health Interventions and health information technology

Taking care of individuals extends beyond the walls of hospitals and clinics. The organizations and initiatives that reach deep into our communities can also realize the benefits of health information technology. Learn the best practices of implementing health information technology solutions outside of the “typical” care setting.
