The Next Frontier: Health Care Disparities
Wednesday, September 27, 2017
10:00 to 11:00 a.m. CT

We will discuss the impact of health disparities on quality of care, health outcomes and overall cost of care.  Jackie Conrad, RN, BS, MBA, RCC, improvement advisor from Cynosure Health, will lead an exploration of equity and diversity.

Representatives of Kearny County Hospital, a critical access hospital in southwest Kansas, will highlight their efforts to improve the community capacity to address health equity issues through innovative approaches and partnerships.

The South Central HIINergy Partners is a group of six geographically proximal state hospital associations (Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas).  We have partnered together to create synergy and an enriched virtual learning experience for our participating HRET HIIN hospitals. 

We are working together with shared aims in achieving a 20 percent reduction in all-cause harms and a 12 percent reduction in all-cause readmissions.

The regional South Central HIINergy Partners events will take place bi-monthly on the fourth Wednesday of each month (January through September) 2017.
