2019 Summit Series, presented by Great Lakes Health Connect

The barriers that stand between current state and optimal state of the healthcare system are complicated and numerous.  These barriers prevent organizations and providers from delivering, coordinating, and tracking patient care. By harnessing the power of technology and relationships, we can break down those barriers.

Organizations, departments, teams, and individuals must create and exude a culture that rewards creativity, excellence, and flexibility. By connecting these cultures of care, we can achieve a fully sustainable and integrated healthcare ecosystem.

These observations about the healthcare industry are what inspired the theme of the 2019 Summit Series … “Breaking down barriers – connecting cultures of healthcare.”


The Capital Area Summit will feature an Advance Care Planning (ACP) track with three breakout sessions. Nursing and Social Work continuing education credits are pending.
