The Health Policy Institute of Ohio’s Health Innovations 2013 conference gives you acccess to a slate of highly respected national experts, without the travel cost and high registration fees of an out-of-state conference.
The one-day event, on May 8 at the Fawcett Center at The Ohio State University, will showcase innovative approaches to
health-related issues that have been adopted from other industries or sectors,
including behavioral economics, gaming and the nuclear power industry. These
approaches have the potential to reduce health costs, improve outcomes or
increase access. Participants also will learn about the relevant state or
federal policy implications of these approaches.
The event’s keynote speaker is Brian McGowan, PhD, a consultant and researcher who wrote "#SOCIALQI: Simple Solutions for Improving Your Healthcare." He will discuss how techniques adopted from social media can improve health care by tackling variability in care and promoting greater dissemination and adoption of best practices.
