Healthcare Leadership Forum Examines Implementation of Evidence-Based Medicine in Daily Clinical Practice

    This year’s Healthcare Leadership Forum, hosted by Clinical Innovation + Technology and sponsored by Elsevier’s ClinicalKey, will bring together clinical and IT leaders Nov. 14-15 in Chicago to learn about best practices for integrating evidence into clinical practice to enable more efficient, high-quality healthcare delivery.

    “Evidence at the Center of Care” features keynote speakers John D. Halamka, MD, MS, CIO, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Capt. Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger, Co-Chairman, EEA Young Eagles, in addition to many other exciting presenters. This two-day interactive leadership forum on the role of evidence-based medicine (EBM) will explore topics such as patient safety and satisfaction, EHR implementation and adoption, clinical decision support, current and future EBM standards, and meaningful use.

    “Continued advancement of our knowledge and experiences in evidence-based medicine is required if we are to have a meaningful impact on patient care,” said Dr. Edward Shortliffe, Professor of Biomedical Informatics at Arizona State University and conference co-chair. “The Healthcare Leadership Forum is the ideal environment to examine both current and future best practices in evidence-based care and their implications for improvements to the healthcare system overall.”

It provides a symposium for physician and clinical leaders, C-suite executives, researchers and opinion leaders to learn, discuss, exchange information and network.
