I’ve participated in the last two Society for Health Systems conferences, as a presenter, and I’m looking forward to attending the 2011 event in Orlando, FL next February (17 to 20). It’s an excellent event – both the content and the networking around healthcare quality improvement. Their logo looks like a hurricane – a hurricane of learning?
Anyhoo… I’m the chair for the Patient Flow track this year and I want your help in rounding up (or submitting) outstanding presentations. You might expect I’d head the Lean & Six Sigma track, but they already had a volunteer. While the Patient Flow track isn’t exclusively about Lean, there are opportunities for presentations about Lean and other methods for improving Patient Flow.
To learn more, visit the SHS website, which has info about the conference and about how to submit an abstract – the deadline is coming soon — AUGUST 7.
