Conference Chair's Message

We Invite You To Present And Join Us At The 2021 Conference in Denver

What population health strategies are you working on? Are you improving your quality measures? Looking for new ways to address Social Determinants of Health? Expanding your behavioral health access and scope to improve outcomes? Have you been successful in engaging patients to improve their health outcomes? Have you and your staff developed a culture of continuous practice improvement? How are you using care coordination and team-based care to address high risk patients and reduce costs?

The Conference on Practice and Quality Improvement gives you the opportunity to share your knowledge and experiences and to learn from peers who have transformed and are still transforming their clinical practices and residency programs. The conference provides a forum for sharing your successes and learning from colleagues as we all develop strategies to demonstrate quality of care and cost-effectiveness to payers. Conference attendees will be able to network with other primary care practice teams from residency programs, private practices, and public safety net clinics.

On behalf of my colleagues on the conference steering committee, we look forward to reviewing your submissions.

Stacey Bartell, MD
2021 Conference Chair
