The Power of Collaboration: 5th Annual MedStar Research Symposium

Oh what a night!

With almost 500 attendees from across the MedStar Health system and our collaborative partners, we presented more than 100 posters on the research that MedStar has executed over the last year. This was the largest symposium to date and uniformly the highest quality!

Presentations covered all aspects of health care from nursing practices and palliative care to neurology and cardiology to sports medicine and critical care research and more. Our academics paired with real-world medicine to deliver innovations in care that extend across the system to all the populations that we serve.

Our partnership with CVS Health was showcased with our keynote speaker, Dr. William Shrank. His presentation on the benefits of partnering with innovative healthcare organizations who rapidly learn to better serve their patients was a highlight of the evening. His praise of MedStar as a place that CVS wants to partner with further energized the audience.

I want to share my thanks and appreciation for all the investigators and their research teams who submitted their work to display at the Symposium and to all who came out to support the great investigative work. And of course, none of this would be possible with out the wonder associates of MHRI that I get the privilege  to work with every day - thank YOU!

You can continue the collaboration and share the Symposium with those that were not able to attend by visiting the virtual Symposium created by SiTEL which will include all submitted posters. You can find the virtual symposium here: http://sitel.org/mhrivirtualsymposium/vs2016/
