LeadingAge Need to Know, May 12, 2021

Join Us for the 2021 Collaborative Care Summit

From managing mountains of data to navigating regulatory changes, the work of aging services is increasingly complex. Tech tools and innovations can help your team reduce costs and improve care—but only when you understand which tools are right for you.

CEOs, CTOs, and your whole executive team won’t want to miss the 2021 Collaborative Care & Health IT Innovations Summit, happening virtually June 8-10, for your chance to learn about tech that can improve care, drive efficiency, and boost your bottom line.

Keynotes on tech innovations, responses to the pandemic, alternative payment models, and more from:

  • Joe Coughlin, Founder and Director MIT AgeLab
  • Mark McClellan, MD, PhD, Director and Robert J. Margolis, M.D., Professor, Business, Medicine and Policy at Margolis Center
  • Chris Ritter, Patient Care Models Group Director, Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovations (CMMI), Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
  • Peter Kress, CIO, ACTS Retirement-Life Communities, Inc.
