Speakers Inspire at Summer Conference

The August 24th Summer Conference was an incredible event packed full of exciting speakers and a lot of great networking time.

Dewey Freeman presented a very timely update on Meaningful Use. As nursing leaders, it is imperative that we know and understand the requirements our organizations face and how we can impact the success of EMR implementation.

Sue Ragsdale brought us very practical “how to” tips for creating award winning poster presentations. ArONE has made a pledge to begin bringing poster presentations to the educational meetings. Nursing does incredible work every day that impacts patient care, quality, outcomes, and healthcare improvements across the board. It is imperative that we share that work and the knowledge of how to replicate it throughout the state.

Beth Hennessey presented an incredible message on care transitions throughout the spectrum of health. Nursing has a place at the table of healthcare, it’s not the place on the side line or the end….it is the HEAD of the table. We cannot navigate through the ever changing processes of the health care environment without claiming that seat and taking action. Taking control of the transitions in healthcare improves patient care, outcomes, quality, and financial resource utilization. Accountable Care Organization establishment and function and Value Based Purchasing payment programs are only a few (really big) reasons why nursing needs to get to work making transitions in care better than ever before.

ArONE is an organization dedicated to Advancing Nursing Leadership in Arkansas. If you are a nursing leader in the State of Arkansas, you need to be a part of ArONE. Contact one of the board members at anytime for questions or information ~ together we can do more.
