It’s an exciting time to be a psychiatrist. With the final implementation of health care reform slated for 2014, this meeting is the pivotal one for the profession to complete preparations for a new era in health care. New opportunities exist for psychiatrists to collaborate with their medical colleagues to improve outcomes, improve the experience of care, and contribute to “bending the cost curve,” thus aiding health systems in reaching the heralded Triple Aim. The Integrated Care Track will provide ample opportunities to hone your skills, learn new strategies for collaborating with your primary care colleagues, demonstrate the value added to health care teams when psychiatric services are included, and more. Here is a sampling of the exciting lineup of presentations and speakers for this meeting.
