With new regulations and federal mandates making patient care delivery more complicated, patient safety and nurse quality remains a large focus for the nursing industry. Nursing executives are trying to calculate exactly how healthcare reform will translate into real world care delivery models and how to effectively communicate this to patients and providers. Moreover, the role of the nurse in the use of technology to improve the delivery of patient care has evolved. Healthcare leaders recognize that electronic health records can integrate consumer and provider access to health information across the care continuum and to deliver stricter data protection regulations for more secure patient privacy. This Summit will highlight the current challenges and opportunities for Chief Nursing Officer executives through visionary conference sessions and keynote presentations delivered by your most esteemed peers and thought leaders focused on superior delivery across North America.
