2019 Summit Series, presented by Great Lakes Health Connect
The barriers that stand between current state and optimal state of the healthcare system are complicated and numerous. These barriers prevent organizations and providers from delivering, coordinating, and tracking patient care. By harnessing the power of technology and relationships, we can break down those barriers.
Organizations, departments, teams, and individuals must create and exude a culture that rewards creativity, excellence, and flexibility. By connecting these cultures of care, we can achieve a fully sustainable and integrated healthcare ecosystem.
These observations about the healthcare industry are what inspired the theme of the 2019 Summit Series … “Breaking down barriers – connecting cultures of healthcare.”

Breakout Session Tracks
Improving Quality and Value Through Health Information Technology
Attendees will learn about the many different applications of Great Lakes Health Connect solutions and services. Current participants and GLHC representatives will share best practices, creative and innovative uses of technology, and will describe how health information technology is helping their organizations improve quality and the value of healthcare.
Continuity of Care and Transition Management
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) defines “transitions of care” as the movement of a patient from one care setting; hospital, ambulatory primary or specialty care practice, long-term care, home health, rehabilitation facility, etc.; to another care setting. Great Lakes Health Connect solutions strengthen connections between post-acute care organizations and inform care providers at every stage.
Population Health and Health Information Technology
In times of crisis and calm, community health information exchanges, like Great Lakes Health Connect, provide the technical infrastructure and necessary relationships needed to create and sustain access to essential clinical information. Attendees will learn about how healthcare organizations and communities can work together to leverage health information technology to better understand, track, and address the spread of chronic illness and disease.
