Nurse Executives from GetWellNetwork to Speak at Beryl Institute Conference

GetWellNetwork®, the Precision Engagement™ health care company, announced today that its Chief Clinical and Nursing Officer Karen Drenkard, Ph.D., RN, NEA-BC, FAAN will speak at the Beryl Institute’s Patient Experience Conference 2018, which will be held April 16-18 in Chicago. Along with Joanne T. Clavelle, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, FACHE, Regional Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer-West, Drenkard will present “Including the Voice of the Patient through Technology to Transform the Patient Experience” at 5 p.m. central time on Monday, April 16.

This session will illustrate how the use of technology to amplify the voice of the patient has transformed the patient experience through embedded clinical workflows across care settings. Delving deeper into the art and science of engaging and empowering patients across their entire care journey, participants will learn how technology bridges the care experience across the continuum.

Drenkard and Clavelle will highlight case studies about improvements in disease management, patient safety, patient experience, clinical quality and nurse-sensitive measures in their session. Participants will share how they are using technology to engage patients and improve outcomes in their organizations.

Details of an innovative electronic assessment tool that measures the capacity of a patient to engage in his or her care will also be discussed, along with how the results of such assessments are used to modify care interventions. Finally, the presenters will explain how technology can be aligned with strategic priorities to achieve optimal outcomes.

Drenkard was recently elected co-chair of the Beryl Institute Nurse Executive Council (NEC) comprised of innovative and visionary nurse executives from health care organizations across North America.
