Text Sample on National Summit

Each year, C-TAC hosts the National Summit on Advanced Illness Care to bring together over 400 healthcare leaders including providers, health systems, payers, employers, academics, and consumer and patient advocates. Here’s why this year’s event is a must:  

The population is aging rapidly – the number of older Americans will double by 2060 – and needs specialized person-centered care that, under present conditions, will either be unavailable or too costly for many patients. Moreover, there is a growing movement to change the way health care is paid for, from fee-for-service to value based care.

This year’s event – co-chaired by former Senate Majority Leaders Tom Daschle (D-SD) and Bill Frist, MD (R-TN) – will take place from November 27-29 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC and is expected to be the biggest yet.

Participants can expect to learn about: healthcare policy in the new political environment; how to develop quality measurements for the movement; designing and implementing care delivery and payment models that benefit patients and work for health systems; advancements in technology and the impact on the way we think about healthcare; and developing a state-level advanced care coalition focused on community engagement, policy advocacy, and building networks of local leaders

The Summit also emphasizes engaging every attendee with a series of breakout sessions on previously requested topics of interest; participants will dig into the issues and interact with experts in the field while building their personal and professional networks.

So register today, and remember that by working together, we can help all Americans with advanced illness, especially the sickest and most vulnerable, receive high quality patient- and family-centered care that is consistent with their values and honors their dignity.
