As more people in the US and around the world gain access to health
services, quality improvers continue to focus on developing new and
better ways to deliver patient care and to coordinate these efforts with
the health needs of communities. Quality improvement initiatives now
extend across the continuum of care, from the hospital to the home, and
feature new models that factor in behavioral health as well as physical
health and the role that social determinants play throughout the life
cycle. This is part of a broadening mission of achieving greater health
equity and improving the health of populations consistent with a payment
system that is shifting from rewarding volume to one focused on value.

Against this backdrop, the 2018 IHI National Forum on Quality
Improvement in Health Care provides the country’s best platform to hear
about successes and challenges and to harness evidence-based solutions
to some of the biggest challenges facing health and health care today.

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 32 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard.I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".Contact me directly at lee@leeeverton.com for scheduling information.
