Register early to save on tuition, hotel rooms

CHA’s Center for Post-Acute Care annual conference, Focused Care—Patients at the Center, will provide practical sessions on post-acute strategic planning, model hospital transition programs, and best practices to reduce readmissions. Big picture policy issues will also be covered, including the influence of policy on practice of care, and how quality indicator research may impact providers. State and federal leaders will also share perspectives on policy and key programs, including the much-debated Coordinated Care Initiative. Event keynote Sally Stamp Starbuck, of Gifted Leaders, will discuss the benefits of a positive culture and explain why better leaders work to manage themselves, instead of others, and lead from the “inside out.” The event will be held Jan. 31 – Feb. 1, 2013, at the host hotel, Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach. Discount deadline for hotel rooms and tuition is Jan. 8, 2013. For more information, including a detailed agenda, or to register, go to
