In late September, the Dominican Republic was the tropical backdrop of the Continuing Medical Education (CME) conference “Ready, Set, Go—In Pursuit of the Triple Aim,” jointly hosted and sponsored by the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Corinthian Medical IPA, and Healthfirst. This Healthfirst conference—the first held outside New York City— was designed to provide information for primary care physicians on key elements of integrated and managed care.
The CME conference engaged primary care physicians around strategies to improve clinical care, reduce gaps in patient care, and support medication adherence and management of complex patients. The conference focused on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s ‘Triple Aim:’ simultaneously improving health outcomes, the patient experience of care, while containing healthcare costs. The conference was attended by 222 physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
