I can’t imagine a better summit. My brain is buzzing with all these new tools, resources, case studies, and innovative ideas and softwares. I’ll be back next year, and if next year is as good as this year, you’ll definitely have made a follower for life out of me.
… This was the best conference in over 20 years that I have attended.
This is by far the best conference I have attended. It was well planned and coordinated. Great job to the team for putting this amazing event together.
Same place, same time next year!! The best conference I’ve attended, fabulous job!
The more energy you can provide on topics of Healthcare the better. 80s night, dine on us, and fun runs were so AWESOME! Hands down best conference I have ever been to! Thanks to all who put forth the effort to get it all done.
You don’t need my help. Fine job. Best conference of the year!

Making Decisions With Data Track
D – MAKING DECISIONS WITH DATA TRACK (1 day)Tuesday, September 12, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Audience: Leaders and members of data-driven improvement teams Every day we swim in an ocean of data and try to make sense of it all with dashboards and reports. However, if we really get honest, how many of us can say that dashboards and reports have yielded sustained outcomes improvement? We can’t—because data alone is insufficient to drive the changes required in this new era of healthcare. During this hands-on, full-day session, national experts will help you move beyond the “so what?”. With a small instructor to student ratio, expect to be challenged and engaged. You’ll learn to take on a new mindset and behaviors that, when coupled with data-driven improvement methods, result in meaningful outcomes improvements. Specifically, here’s what we’ll cover during this intense and concentrated period:
- Why a single data point rarely tells the whole story
- How to avoid making big decisions based on partial information
- Why even the best data can’t give you sustained outcomes improvements if there isn’t a culture of improvement
- Understand variation and statistical process control charts
- Evaluate processes through a family of measures
- Learn what polarities are (think: quality and cost) and how they impact decision making
- Recognize the need for both technical and adaptive leadership
