Description

Dear Colleague:

We warmly invite you to NEHI’s (the Network for Excellence in Health Innovation’s) convening on human factors as part of its “Health Care Without Walls” initiative. This event will be held in Washington, DC, on December 8th from 10am to 3pm at the law offices of Epstein Becker Green at 1227 25th St NW # 700. Please note that registration is by invitation only.

At our launch convening (https://www.nehi.net/events/94-health-care-without-walls-convening/view) of the project on May 10, 2017, participants began to frame a vision of “health care without walls” – a more distributed system of health care outside of conventional institutional settings – and to identify enablers and obstacles to achieving it. Building on this work, NEHI has organized five “work streams” to advance an agenda for achieving that vision, through thought leadership and recommendations for public policy and organizational changes.

The work streams will examine (1) the technological capabilities that could underpin a more distributed care system; (2) the changes in payment, reimbursement, and health system financing that could foster change; (3) regulatory obstacles and potential changes; (4) the composition of the health care work force needed for such a system; and (5) human factors that will support or militate against more rapid uptake of technologies.

We are delighted to have the following individuals as co-leaders for the Human Factors Work Stream including:

  • Pascale Carayon, PhD, Procter and Gamble Bascom Professor in Total Quality/Director of the Center for Quality and Productivity Improvement, University of Wisconsin-Madison

  • Frances Dare, MBA, Managing Director, Health Strategy Practice, Accenture

  • Dan Gillette, Ed.M, Principal Investigator, Public Health Institute; Sr. Research Scientist and Co-Director of Tech for Social Good, CITRIS, UC Berkeley

We have issued a news release with details on all of the work stream leaders.

For more information about the project, please contact me or NEHI’s vice president of programs, Caroline Steinberg (csteinberg@nehi.net) or our vice president of policy partnerships, development, and member relations, Lauren Choi (lchoi@nehi.net). If you can’t attend in person, we are happy to facilitate web conferencing. Please let us know if you’d like more information about joining this convening remotely.

We hope to see you at the convening!

Kind regards,

Susan Dentzer,

President and Chief Executive Officer
