Health care providers, payers, and patients today are all engaged in a search for more effective, less expensive, more satisfying care. They want innovation — not simply in the form of phone apps, but in the ways that health care is delivered.

10 Paths to Innovation in Health Care Delivery

This free, live Web event from NEJM Catalyst will feature sessions on innovation in care delivery through expanding the scope of care to increase its impact, reorganizing primary and specialty care, and reframing care delivery to focus on health rather than illness. Our expert speakers and moderators — including health care executives, researchers, and physician leaders — will draw on their experiences of organizing health systems, researching innovative models of delivery, and providing direct patient care to give viewers ideas and models to use in their own organizations.

Register today and you’ll also receive a free copy of “10 Paths to Innovation in Health Care Delivery.” This collection of original content from NEJM Catalyst explores the many sources and uses of innovation in health care. (link)


Viewers are encouraged to submit questions online for the Q&A portion of each session.
