2016 Mini Conference, May 5, 2016
This conference connects healthcare researchers and practitioners to actively discuss relevant challenges in healthcare operations that impact patient-centeredness. This helps all of us to develop innovative, practical and sustainable solutions that improve the operations of healthcare organizations. This conference provides a venue for discussion between those working and researching healthcare delivery issues to share what works, what doesn't and why, and which areas need greater attention. The conference is meant to complement the POMS annual meeting (May 6-9, 2016) as it gives participants a chance to learn from practitioners and researchers and allows time for brainstorming new research ideas and approaches to improving the effectiveness of healthcare systems.
