Keynote Speakers are leaders in the field and include:
Don Berwick, MD - President Emeritus and Senior Fellow, Institute for Healthcare Improvement and former Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. He currently serves as Lecturer in the Department of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School.
Amy Edmondson, MD - the Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management and Senior Associate Dean, Culture & Community at Harvard Business School. Dr. Edmondson is an expert on organizational behavior, including how leadership, team formation and a culture of psychological safety affects team outcomes

He is responsible for overseeing the infrastructure for clinical quality and its operational efficiency for the entire MedStar system and each of its entities.
And that’s just for starters. A full range of presentations on team work and other approaches to improving diagnosis awaits attendees at the 3 day conclave, the only conference focused solely on diagnosis, a field the IOM has called “a blind spot in the delivery of quality health care.”
