The Nebraska Healthcare Quality Forum is an annual gathering of healthcare professionals representing all provider settings and geographic areas of the state. A full day of inspirational and knowledgeable speakers, the Quality Forum connects healthcare leaders and practitioners and provides a setting to network, learn and share expertise. The Forum is also an opportunity to highlight accomplishments in improving quality and safety for patients and communities across Nebraska.

The focus this year is improving care within our communities and within/across care settings (long-term, acute, post-acute and ambulatory). Presentations will showcase examples highlighting collaborative efforts to improve health outcomes and care, engage consumers and their families and reduce costs.

Keynote Speakers

We are fortunate to have two outstanding keynote presenters to kick-off and conclude the day. Leslie Porth, PhD, is senior vice president of strategic quality initiatives for the Missouri Hospital Association. Her presentation, Standing in the Healthcare Vortex, will paint the national healthcare landscape and offer strategies and actions to survive and thrive in this new era. Sona Mehring, the founder of CaringBridge, will offer her perspective on Improving Health Outcomes Through the Power of Social Support.

Breakout Sessions

In addition to outstanding keynotes, the Quality Forum offers morning and afternoon breakout sessions presented by physicians, nurses and quality and patient safety professionals; each sharing their experiences, best practices and innovative healthcare delivery throughout the state. There is something for everyone. Breakout session topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Medication safety
