What is the Healthcare Collaborations Summit all about?
The Virtua/CHOP Healthcare Collaborations Summit is a unique one-of-a-kind event designed to educate all healthcare stakeholders on innovative partnership ideas. Our goal is to share programs and solutions to increase healthcare access, improve quality and patient safety while also mitigating costs. This is critical as providers are gearing up for the full implementation of national healthcare reform.

Who should attend?
Healthcare executives, physicians, nurses, business and industry leaders, finance professionals, IT experts, legal and policy advisors, community based organizations and public health professionals.

Why should I attend?
With the enrollment of up to 30 million Americans into health insurance plans or Medicaid set to begin on October 1, 2013, this Summit could not be timelier. We believe that the topics discussed at the Healthcare Collaborations Summit will inspire all participants to achieve greater heights as they lead their respective organizations into the new era. Attendees will hear from experts and learn unique ways on how we can all work together- government, providers, community organizations and more. This Summit is unique in its design—and all workshops sessions feature advancing healthcare through collaborations and partnerships.

What is the cost to attend?
The cost to attend is $150 if you register by August 30, 2013. After August 30, the registration rate goes to $225.
