Plan now to attend the 2019 Wisconsin Rural Health Conference, June 12-14, at Glacier Canyon Lodge at The Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells. This annual event is the statewide forum for examining the issues that most impact small and rural hospitals, networking and collaborating with colleagues, and bonding with your senior staff team and members of your hospital board of trustees.
Each year, your colleagues on WHA’s Council on Rural Health act as the planning committee for this conference, and once again in 2019, they have crafted an interesting and diverse education agenda. This year’s opening keynote speaker is Ron Galloway, a researcher, filmmaker and author, who will focus on some of the biggest health care disruptors, identify ways disrupters will leverage their data expertise and ability to launch new technologies quickly to affect health care, and discuss what these companies’ strategies mean for rural health providers.
A variety of breakout sessions will give you the opportunity to examine and discuss models changing the delivery of and access to health care, public policy issues affecting rural health care, and ways in which data and technology are improving care and access for rural populations.
The conference will include:
- The popular education track focused on governance issues;
- Sessions focused on learning the skills and tools to approach a crucial conversation;
- Review of a toolkit of the key legal and compliance issues trustees need to be familiar with; and,
- Examining best practices from some of the nation’s highest-performing hospital boards.
