2015 North Texas Transitional Care Conference
November 12, 2015 @ 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
The 2015 Innovation and Communication in Care Transition conference is the culmination of community efforts and continues a conversation that began in 2013 when the Health Industry Council convened the first Transitional Care Conference in Dallas to discuss ways to work together to improve care transition featuring key stakeholders and national though leaders such as Mike Levitt, Eric Coleman, MD, Mary Naylor PhD, RN, and Joseph Ouslander, MD, to name a few. In 2014, Fort Worth Safe Communities and UNT Health Science Center convened a focused group of hospital and PAC professionals to address communication. Today—we leverage these efforts bringing together community partners and national experts to engage in dynamic interaction, identify strategic innovations, foster interdisciplinary collaboration, and create effective breakout sessions that help concentrate local efforts.
