The Way Forward: Reform's New Focus on Health and Wellness, Independent Aging, Chronic Condition Self-Care and the Tools That Support Them

-- October 21-22, 2010, Boston, MA --

The Center for Connected Health, a division of Partners HealthCare, hosts the 7th annual Connected Health Symposium, October 21-22, 2010. This year's Symposium will map the way ahead. As gridlock threatens elsewhere, the responsibility for driving change falls directly to patients, hospital leaders, payers, physicians, entrepreneurs and IT execs who experience healthcare every day. Breakout sessions and keynote presentations will take a hard look at payment reform, provider accountability and patient self-management and technology tools available and in development to address these pressing issues.
