Colorado Hospital Association 2018 Patient Safety Leadership Congress October 23, 2018

October 1, 2018

Today I am writing to invite you to the 2018 Colorado Hospital Association Patient Safety Leadership Congress, which is being held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at the Denver Marriot South in Park Meadows. This year’s seminar will focus on equipping attendees with solutions for closing the gaps in behavioral health care, including virtual health. It presents an excellent opportunity to learn from successful and innovative models of care from around the country. The program will include a wide variety of experts and thought leaders in behavioral health care, including: 

  • Hochang Benjamin Lee, MD, regional chief of psychiatry for University of Rochester Medical Center, will speak on a new behavioral health care model called “proactive consultation-liaison.” Dr. Lee will address how this model works to reduce lengths of stay, denied days and the use of constant companions by emphasizing screening, early intervention and deploying a multidisciplinary behavioral health team.
  • Barbara Martin, the director of the Colorado State Innovation Model Office, will teach the audience how two federal initiatives, which have brought in $76 million to the state, are improving care coordination and referral processes to improve outcomes for behavioral health patients.

Registration and more information about the 2018 Patient Safety Leadership Congress can be found online. Please note that early bird registration closes on Friday, Oct. 12.
