Conifer Health Solutions®, the nation’s leading provider of technology-enabled healthcare performance improvement services, will present $5,000 to Make-A-Wish® San Diego during the 2014 Society for Healthcare Strategy & Market Development (SHSMD) Connections conference in San Diego this week. Attendees of SHSMD will also be eligible to enter a drawing for an additional $10,000 gift from Conifer that the winner can take home to present to their local Make-A-Wish organization.

“At Conifer Health, we are committed to fostering good health, combating hunger and improving the lives of others,” said Dorothy Rubio, senior vice president of Patient Services. “We have thousands of interactions with healthcare consumers each day, and service is at the heart of everything we do. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. It is a wonderful organization that closely aligns with the values we hold in high esteem at Conifer.”

The $5,000 gift from Conifer Health will be accepted on behalf of the chapter by Wish Kid Anna and her parents, during a presentation outside the SHSMD exhibit hall at the Manchester Grand Hyatt on Tuesday, October 14 at 10:00 am. Conference participants are invited to attend the presentation and to visit Conifer Health’s booth #708 during exhibit hall hours, October 12-15 for the chance to win the $10,000 Make-A-Wish experience for a chapter in their community.

Also at SHSMD Connections 2014, Conifer Health will introduce Tuesday’s general session keynote speaker, Eric J. Topol, MD. Throughout the conference, the company will showcase services that enable care providers to deliver patient-centric care and quality patient experiences.
