“We will be addressing the need to change how we deliver care and services to those who are most vulnerable in an evolving era of federal and state healthcare reform,” said Sheila K. Kee, Chief Operating Officer, Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center. “Participants will share their perceptions about care coordination and identify strategies to overcome barriers that too often separate medical care from social supports and agencies.”

Developing successful two-way communications will be a giant step in the right direction, Kee said.

“We will openly discuss strategies for sending and receiving referrals on behalf of a client in need, updating client progress, supporting client education and engaging in effectively coordinating care and services,” Kee said. “Everybody will benefit if we collaborate effectively.”

Wednesday’s conference will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For information, call Latasha Cooper at (716) 278-4647.
