Topic Areas for Abstracts

Health Care Quality: The know-how and skills to improve quality in health care today can be promoted in the clinical learning environment across the clinical care delivery, educational, and research continuums.

Patient Safety: Patient safety is at the core of providing quality care. Proposals should address practical strategies, approaches, and lessons learned for how attendees can improve patient safety and optimize the environment for learning, care, and discovery.

High-Value Care: The goal of high-value health care is to produce the best health outcomes at the lowest cost. Health care professionals are increasingly given incentives to deliver high-value care by virtue of such payment reform measures as pay-for-performance policies, bundled-payment strategies, global budgets, and financial risk sharing within accountable care organizations.
