QCOR - Why Attend Header

Quality in Practice. That is the underlying theme of the 2014 conference. At a time of unprecedented change in the healthcare environment, the goal of the conference is to share insights form thought leaders, provide practical tools for researchers and practitioners, and support the next generation of quality of care and outcomes scientists. Novel research methods for quantifying outcomes, new findings from clinical trials and observational studies and translational research will also be featured. This meeting has a special focus on the development of new investigators with several opportunities to showcase their research. 

Join us June 2-4, 2014 in Baltimore, Maryland at the Hilton Baltimore for QCOR 2014!

Target Audience
This conference is for clinicians, researchers, medical students and trainees, nurses, pharmacists, administrators, healthcare and managed care professionals, policymakers and other healthcare professionals interested in quality of care and outcomes research in cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the status of the ACA, including the causes and implications of legislative changes, legal decisions, implementation delays, and real-world experience, and identify opportunities and best practices to overcome challenges.
  • Discuss pathways toward entrepreneurial innovation among healthcare professionals and the impact of private-sector initiatives in outcomes research and quality of care.
  • Discuss current trends in global health outcomes research and the need to ensure similar standards for scientific rigor as such programs expand beyond the US and Europe.
