Chair's Message

The landscape of health care is transforming at an unprecedented rate. Primary care, as the foundation of the health care system, is at the forefront of this transformation. The Conference on Practice Improvement engages participants through discussions about this changing health care landscape and provides a forum for sharing examples of redesign from private practice, academic practice, and public clinics.

The Conference on Practice Improvement provides a venue for learning from those on the front line of improving primary care practice. Sessions focus on improving patient access, expanding available services, integrating care management and behavioral health, coordinating care, expanding the primary care team, rethinking payment and productivity, improving health information technology, and improving quality.

In addition to formal workshops and lectures, conference attendees are provided ample informal networking opportunities through special interest breakfasts, dine-outs, and receptions. Please do not miss this exciting opportunity to share your hard-earned wisdom and experience with colleagues interested in improving patient care.

The Conference on Practice Improvement is a wonderful venue to share and learn best practices with academic and private practice colleagues from across the country. On behalf of the conference steering committee, I look forward to having you and your team join us at the conference in Tampa!
