Why Should You Attend? Our theme this year Patient-Centered Primary Care: At the Heart of Value and Quality offers the opportunity for you and your colleagues to participate in dozens of panel discussions and workshops that will focus on the critical role of patient-centered primary care in achieving health care delivery system reform. This year our program will not only include high-level policy discussions from primary care and medical home thought leaders, but also “how to” discussions led by experts in the field in our workshops and break-out sessions.
Who Should Attend? This conference is designed for providers, care coordinators and team members, health plan directors and administrators, patients, families, advocates, consumers, specialists, public affairs professionals and anyone else interested in learning how patient-centered primary care and the medical home can improve health care quality.
