The 2011 Zynx Health Conference Will Focus on Strategies for Improving Cost and Quality Outcomes

An estimated 230 attendees to share best practices for clinical decision support, including approaches for CPOE integration, quality improvement, and cost containment

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Zynx Health, the market leader in providing evidence-based and experience-based clinical decision support solutions, will gather preeminent healthcare industry leaders at its seventh annual Zynx Health Conference from May 18 to 20, 2011, in Carlsbad, California.

In an era of complex healthcare reform, many hospitals and healthcare organizations are leveraging evidence-based clinical decision support to reduce disparities in care, improve interdisciplinary coordination, optimize clinical efficiencies, and enable “meaningful use” of electronic health records in inpatient and outpatient care settings. In addition to presenting best practices for achieving these strategic goals, Zynx Health client plenary session speakers at the conference will offer tactical advice on topics such as integrating clinical decision support into CPOE solutions, supporting the creation of accountable care organizations, and implementing ambulatory order sets.

The Zynx Health Conference keynote speakers include Dr. Jason Hwang, co-founder and executive director of healthcare at Innosight Institute presenting “The Innovator's Prescription: How Disruptive Innovation Can Fix Health Care,” and Fred Bayon, senior director of The Advisory Board Company presenting “Where is Health Care Going?” In addition, the conference will offer interactive best practice breakout sessions focusing on strategies of implementing clinical decision support tools with top EHR systems.

“The implementation of evidence-based clinical decision support is critical for health systems, hospitals, and clinicians who are working to improve cost and quality outcomes across the continuum of care,” said Scott Weingarten, MD, MPH, president and CEO of Zynx Health. “As leaders in the field of evidence-based clinical decision support, our client speakers will offer a roadmap for addressing ‘meaningful use’ and preparing for accountable care.”
