International Patient-Centered Care Symposium Announces Speakers, Features Cross-Continuum Healthcare Topics

BALTIMORE, July 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Healthcare innovators from around the world will gather together to attend the 19th Annual International Patient-Centered Care Symposium at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront to discuss the latest in patient-centered excellence. The event, hosted by National Research Corporation, takes place on September 22-25 and focuses on knowledge sharing and networking, highlights healthcare best practices, and provides industry-leading insight into empowering customer-centric healthcare across the continuum. Symposium's keynote presenter, Dr. Peter Pronovost, will kick off the conference Sunday afternoon by discussing simple steps to improve hospitals and patient care. As Director of the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Pronovost provides insight into how hospitals and doctors can function day to day to improve patient lives. Most recently, he's introduced a five-step checklist that standardizes a common ICU procedure that has decreased the rate of infection and unnecessary deaths across the country. His keynote presentation will provide evidence from patients, healthcare professionals, and comprehensive research on medical procedures and policies. In addition to Pronovost, several leading healthcare industry speakers will present at Symposium. Maura Davies, President and CEO of Saskatoon Health Region in Canada, will share how patients and families play a strong role in transforming Saskatoon's health system that serves more than one million people. The organization is leading the way in using lean principles and engaging patients in continuously improving care and services. Paul Rao, Vice President of Inpatient Operations and Compliance at MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital in Washington, D.C., will discuss how the hospital has shifted from a controlled customer satisfaction platform to utilizing a patient experience platform and the success behind it. The event will also feature an awards banquet recognizing clients for their improvement initiatives and accomplishments on Sunday evening. The Innovative Best Practice Award is given to National Research clients who showcase best practices that result in significant improvements in patient-centered care and healthcare outcomes. Symposium has been hosted annually by National Research since 1994. For more information and to register, visit About Symposium
