The eHealth Colloquium Conference Series
The eHealth Colloquium conference series addresses issues of healthcare policy and practice through week-long executive courses offered at major academic institutions. The first Colloquium, which addressed the impact of the Internet on healthcare, took place at Harvard University in August of 2000. This special edition of the Colloquium will address the issues of healthcare quality and medical errors reduction.
Enhancing Quality and Reducing Errors
A year ago, The Institute of Medicine ("IOM") issued "To Err is Human," its famous report on medical errors in the United States. It is anticipated that IOM will issue three follow-up reports on strategies in quality enhancement and medical error reduction in 2001.
This executive course of Strategies in Enhancing Healthcare Quality and Reducing Medical Errors, a special edition of the eHealth Colloquium Series, provides a strategic road map for healthcare purchasers, plans and providers in their efforts to reduce medical errors and improve healthcare quality.
The Colloquium takes place on the campus of Harvard University. Morning, afternoon and evening classes are held in Langdell Hall of the Harvard Law School. Langdell Hall is uniquely constructed to offer broad band Internet access to all Colloquium participants. Lunches and discussion groups will be held at the Harvard Faculty Club and the Inn at Harvard.
Sunday, March 25 through Thursday March 29. Registration begins on Sunday, March 25 from 10:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. The Colloquium commences on Sunday, March 25 at 1:00 P.M. and adjourns at 4:00 P.M. on Thursday, March 29.
Who Should Attend
Interactive Discussion Groups
The Colloquium luncheons at the Harvard Faculty Club and The Inn at Harvard will be divided into tables of ten to twelve. This approach will enhance professional networking and interactive discussions of the topics addressed by the Colloquium.
Harvard University, the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States, was established in 1636 by a vote of the Great and General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and was named for its first benefactor, John Harvard of Charlestown, a young minister who upon his death in 1638, left his library and half of his estate to the new institution. Today, Harvard has grown to become a great undergraduate and graduate research University, with more than 18,000 degree candidates enrolled.
