GetConnected 2014 to Spotlight Clinical, IT and Executive Strategies for Advancing Patient Engagement

Seventh Annual GetWellNetwork Interactive Patient Care Client Conference Connects Industry Leaders for Exchanging Best Practices and Developing Strategies to Improve Patient Care Quality, Cost and Safety Outcomes

BETHESDA, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 04/16/14 -- GetWellNetwork®, Inc., the leader in Interactive Patient Care™ (IPC) solutions, today announced that GetConnected 2014, The Interactive Patient Care Conference, will be held June 3-5, 2014 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers. The event brings together health care executives, clinicians and IT professionals to collaborate and exchange ideas for advancing patient engagement, improving clinical outcomes and managing population health across the care continuum.

Approximately 600 members of the IPC community will share the latest patient engagement strategies, learn from hands-on demonstrations and workshops, and connect with industry leaders. The conference will feature more than 70 client-led presentations, community discussions, e-poster presentations, learning labs and more.

"The patient experience is no longer confined to hospital walls, the inpatient stay, or even a visit to the physician's office," said Michael O'Neil, founder and CEO of GetWellNetwork who will deliver the conference's keynote address on Wednesday, June 4. "Today, patient engagement touches every aspect of a patient's health journey and GetConnected 2014 will bring together the best minds to activate patients, families and communities around the world."

National Health Care Leaders and Speakers to Address Patient Engagement

Many of the nation's leading health care organizations -- multi-campus health systems, pediatric institutions, and academic, Military Health and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers -- are scheduled to attend and present at GetConnected 2014.

The conference features case studies, strategic discussions and learning tracks in three distinct areas of focus: Clinical, Strategy and IT.

Clinician attendees will hear proven strategies for advancing the role of nurses as care managers across settings and improving patient outcomes. IT professionals will discuss strategies for interoperability and how true integration of data and workflows enables a more effective patient journey from treatment to wellness. Executive, clinical and IT leaders will examine proven methods for defining and incorporating patient engagement as a core component of an organization's overall strategic plan.

Alex Sheen, founder of because I said I would, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving humanity through the importance of keeping promises, will be GetConnected 2014's featured speaker. And two world-class hospitals in Chicago will open their doors to GetConnected 2014 attendees and host specially arranged on-site visits.

The University of Chicago Medicine's Center for Care and Discovery will take registered attendees through their 10-story "hospital for the future" and demonstrate how they are leveraging IPC technology to facilitate falls prevention, discharge planning and pain management. Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, one of the nation's top 10 children's hospitals, will show registered attendees how IPC has become a central part of the patient and family experience throughout the facility.

Finally, the community's achievements will be recognized during a special awards ceremony. The IPC Awards formally recognize health care organizations that have advanced their delivery of IPC by applying the GetWellNetwork Blueprint for Success, demonstrating performance improvement and committing to patient and family engagement through the use of IPC technology.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
