    More about the 2015 Call for Presenters


    We want attendees to come away from each Summit with more knowledge and 
    more motivation to return to their healthcare institutions and drive positive 
    patient flow change. Each year we strive to build an environment that’s most 
    conducive to achieving these results. 

    A key element of our approach is finding experienced presenters who are patient 
    flow leaders within their hospitals and healthcare systems. We look for leaders 
    who have compelling stories to share about their efforts to improve patient 
    throughput. We want presenters who will inspire their peers with ideas that 
    they can take and apply in their respective healthcare institutions. 

    Over the years, we’ve been fortunate to have many talented presenters and 
    outstanding presentations. The bar has been set. As we look to 2015, we are 
    looking for presenters and topics that will build on the Summit’s excellent 
    tradition of thought leadership. 

    If you have a patient flow story that you feel would be of value to the patient 
    flow community, we invite you to respond to the 2015 Patient Flow Summit Call 
    for Presenters. 

    Best regards, 

    Derek Hays 
    Executive Director, 2015 Patient Flow Summit

    Call for Presenters Q & A

    What Benefits Do Presenters Receive?
    Summit presenters receive complimentary conference registration and lodging at the JW Marriott during their Summit stay. Presenters are also seen as patient flow thought leaders.

    What Should I Present About?
    Each year, the Summit features a wide range of patient flow presentations. Some sessions focus on fundamentals such as transfer center basics and capacity management essentials. Our audience particularly appreciates hearing case studies or examples of what hospitals have done to improve throughput and the impact those efforts have had.

    Beyond the basics, each Summit features presentations that look at patient flow from unique perspectives. Go to patientflowsummit.com and review the content from past events for examples and topic ideas.

    How Long is Each Presentation?
    Breakout sessions last approximately 50 minutes: 45 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for Q&A. Breakout sessions are repeated, so each presentation will be delivered twice.

    How Are Presenters Chosen?
    The Patient Flow Summit team will review all submissions. To create a balanced conference program, presentations are selected based on a variety of factors. A member of the Patient Flow Summit team will contact you by September 12, 2014 to discuss whether you have been selected to present at the 2015 Patient Flow Summit.
