The Disease Management Care Blog would like to point out that the DMAA: The Care Continuum Alliance will reach an important milestone in just a little more than three weeks from now. That's right, this is the 10th annual meeting, which will be held in Hollywood, Fla.
DMAA has evolved along with its members over the past decade, addressing the full continuum of chronic disease care and the changing approaches to health care delivery. At the upcoming meeting, a new track will examine the Patient-Centered Medical Home and population health improvement's contributions to this model of care. A featured keynote underscores this: medical home proponents Bruce Bagley, MD, of the American Academy of Family Physicians; and Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative Chair Paul Grundy, MD. Yours truly will be very interested in what they have to say and will resist populationating.
The DMCB will also be presenting in the Pacesetters International sessions on a successful offshore, web-based disease management program. More on this is a later post.
Readers should visit the The Forum site to learn more, wonder if your picture will ever be posted along with these other white male illuminati and to register for this most excellent program. Also note that members of DMAA and several partner organizations, including CMSA and NACDD, can attend at a significant discount.
See you there.
