SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, announced today that its Experience Innovation Network will convene its 13th Chief Experience Officer (CXO) Roundtable October 17-19, 2017, in San Francisco. This three day, invitation-only event will focus on ground-breaking research, human-centered technologies, and best practices shaping the future of caring.
The Experience Innovation Network is a community of thought leaders from across the United States and Canada focused on addressing the Quadruple Aim of improving population health, elevating patient-centered care, and reducing costs while restoring care team resilience and well-being. Twice a year network members, innovators and guest speakers assemble to discuss innovations and strategies that are accelerating transformation and deepening the body of evidence that links human experience in healthcare to quality, safety, loyalty and outcomes.
The latest research by the Experience Innovation Network will be discussed and made available during the CXO Roundtable. The report, Communication Deconstructed, takes an in-depth look at healthcare communication and offers a framework for effective, human-centered clinical communication. The framework includes seven key elements identified by in-depth interviews with clinical communication experts, senior healthcare executives inside and outside the member Network, as well as patients. Case studies in the report span topics ranging from high reliability, interdisciplinary rounding, difficult communications, and creating respectful personal connections.
The power of communication will be a central theme at the fall CXO Roundtable, where an impressive lineup of patient advocates, physician and nurse leaders, healthcare executives, scientists, authors, innovators and researchers will take the stage. Among the keynote speakers and panelists are:
