In The News

You're Invited To C-TAC's National Summit on Advanced Illness!

Each year, the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC) hosts the National Summit on Advanced Illness Care, bringing together hundreds of healthcare leaders, policy makers, consumer advocates, academics and others in a new movement about comprehensive, value- and patient-focused care for people with advanced illness. This year’s Summit will be held at the Denver Hilton City Center in Denver, Colorado (October 9–11).

C-TAC recognizes that the important work of healthcare reform cannot happen solely in Washington, DC. It needs to occur on the ground with people interacting with their clinicians, local health providers, and community institutions. As part of our long-term commitment to working with our partners in Colorado, we would like to extend members of locally based organizations an invitation to attend the National Summit at a specially discounted rate ($200).

This year's summit will focus on how to implement innovative care and payment reform programs for people living with advanced illness. This event brings together over 400 healthcare stakeholders representing providers, health systems, health insurers, consumer groups, patient advocates, private-sector employers, and thought leaders from around the country. It’s fully interactive, providing ample opportunity to engage in meaningful dialog with presenters, meeting and sharing experiences with colleagues from around the country and exploring new and challenging approaches that can be immediately useful.

Why attend? Attendees will leave with an understanding of the public policy changes, cross-sector trends and most innovative models impacting advanced illness care, new partners to advance their work, and overarching goals to benchmark against and advance the national advanced care transformation agenda.

So join Torrie Fields (Senior Program Manager, Blue Cross Blue Shield of California), Tim Bauerschmidt and Ramie Liddle (authors of Driving Miss Norma), BJ Miller (+5 Million views TedTalk), Lucy Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air), and hundreds of your peers at the 2018 National Summit on Advanced Illness Care.
