Please join us next month for a special event hosted by Health Care For All, the Massachusetts Campaign for Better Care and the Suffolk University Law School Health and Biomedical Law Concentration on Friday, February 11, 2011 at 8:30a.m. at Suffolk University Law School. Our event will feature a keynote address by Dartmouth Medical School professor and health care innovator, Dr. John Wasson as well as a roundtable discussion with health care experts entitled:
“Patient Empowerment: More Than a Slogan”
The debate about the best way to curtail health care costs and improve quality in the Commonwealth continues to be the focus of state leaders and members of the media. We at the Massachusetts Campaign for Better Care are actively working to ensure the debate to stem rising costs is focused on healthier outcomes for patients by encouraging consumers to raise their voices and become engaged in the process. In an effort to explore the best ways to engage consumers and improve patient outcomes, the Campaign for Better Care has invited health care experts to discuss best practices. Panelists include:
* Commonwealth Care Alliance
* Foundation for Informed Decision-Making
* and more!
Our event will begin with a keynote address delivered by Dr. John Wasson, who has pioneered a nationally-recognized program to improve patient outcome through the Ideal Medical Practice project (see www.idealmedicalpractices.org) and the Institute for Health Care Improvement. We will then launch our panel discussion and close with remarks from a guest speaker who be announced in the coming weeks. Light refreshments will also be served.
To RSVP to our event please email Jekkie Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Jekkie at 617-275-2944.
We look forward to seeing you on the 11th at 8:30am.
