2015 Quality Forum Agenda

KFMC's annual Quality Forum is one platform used to educate healthcare providers and organizations on ways to improve the use of HIT and the quality of healthcare provided to all Kansas healthcare consumers. Peers and recognized experts share new ideas, methods and best practices to improve quality and enhance care, focusing on the latest concepts which are transforming the healthcare industry in Kansas. This year, Andrew Pleasant, Ph.D. and Alicia Cole were selected as keynote speakers at the Quality Forum held Friday, July 31, 2015, in Wichita. Both offered a unique look into different aspects of patient safety and quality care, providing diverse experiences and applications of their knowledge and education.
