LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) and the LTPAC Health IT Collaborative announce key speakers and agenda topics for the upcoming Collaborative Care & Health IT Innovations Summit, June 23 to 25, 2019 in Baltimore, MD. 

The Summit, now in its 16th year, is unique in its focus on the interplay of technology across health care settings, including long-term and post-acute care, and the resulting opportunities for person-centered, patient-directed care delivery and payment models. Over two and a half days, a variety of presenters from tech, long-term and post-acute care, hospital and physician care partners, payor organizations and policy, come together for exploration of pressing topics, like assessing and adopting new cross-sector quality measures or the pros and cons of becoming a payor, versus partnering with one. They’ll also delve into real-world provider case studies to learn about the benefits of engaging with health information exchange networks to move data across care settings, shared care planning and coordination, or telehealth-powered collaborative care. Attendees will be updated on the latest innovations in areas from care delivery and payment models to relevant emerging technologies. Hot topics like opioids, controlled substances and health IT will also be addressed.
