Quality and Safety Improvement Issues

Moderated by Mantosh Dewan - SUNY Upstate

In the midst of the constantly shifting landscape of healthcare, there is a strong and central focus on the quality of care delivered to patients. For physicians, this focus is paramount to the work they do. Patient engagement, hospital structure, electronic medical records all become tools to best implement the highest standard of care. This panel will allow for a lively conversation between the technology innovators on the front lines, the physicians and the thought leaders in quality improvement.

Our goal is to engage academic practitioners and technical innovators in a joint dialogue toward optimal solutions.
