By Kindred Healthcare

Fifth Annual Clinical Impact Symposium Kicks Off! The fifth annual Kindred Clinical Impact Symposium is officially underway! This year’s symposium, “Clinical Excellence in Care Transitions and Disease Management: Managing Diabetes, Infections and Cognition Across the Continuum” will run today through Thursday at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Louisville.

Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations of the Hospital Division Tony Disser welcomed participants to the “most exciting few days in care transitions” at Kindred Healthcare with an apology for the cold and snowy weather. Official Kentucky Derby bugler played “My Old Kentucky Home” and the call to post, a Clinical Impact Symposium traditional treat.

Disser then introduced Patti Bischof, Senior Director of Education and Training for the Hospital Division, for housekeeping announcements and to thank participants for attending; Senior Vice President, Quality and Integrated Care for Kindred Healthcare Mary Van de Kamp shared a tribute for American veterans, asking participants to stand in tribute to veterans and their families.

Over the next few days, Clinical Impact Symposium participants will hear from some of the most widely respected experts in the nation, take part in interactive break-out sessions and view poster presentations and attend a vendor tradeshow. The symposium’s goal is for participants to take the knowledge they gain home to their respective facilities, share it with colleagues and continue to improve upon the value Kindred provides to each patient, resident, family member, customer, employee and shareholder it serves.
