    THE TIME IS NOW FOR NEW, EFFICIENT AND COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES
    TO TRADITIONAL LEARNING APPROACHES

    A variety of forces - the nation's economic crisis, costly and difficult air travel, the mandate for cost efficiency in healthcare, the proliferation of greater Internet bandwidth, the emergence of the popularity of online video via You Tube, and the explosion of online training in the health sector - has come together to create both a dramatic need and an extraordinary opportunity for innovative approaches to sharing new ideas and best practices. This Summit offers not only traditional conference attendance, but also the opportunity to attend the event live and archived online.

    How can we be expected to reform the nation's health system if we can not reform the way we do our own business?
