IHC Poster Symposium

Why participate?

The Iowa Healthcare Collaborative (IHC) Poster Symposium will be a venue for promoting and sharing of best practices during day one of our IHC Annual Forum on April 10, 2019. The three-hour symposium will recognize outstanding leadership and achievement in quality and safety demonstrated by healthcare providers, hospitals, communities, clinics and organizations. The symposium will honor champions who support initiatives that improve patient safety, promote population health, reduce the risk of harm and encourage person-centered health. 

Participants will be asked to create a poster using a provided template and prepare a 5-minute presentation to present to a review panel during the symposium on April 10. A template will be provided to assist with the presentation. One award will be presented per category, along with an “fan favorite” award participants can vote on during the symposium. 

Awards will be publicly presented at the IHC Annual Forum on April 10. IHC Leadership will formally present an award at your organization at a later date and will provide a press release for local media. 

One free registration for the IHC Annual Forum will be included with each Poster Symposium application. Registration for the Forum for additional attendees is $185 for one day or $320 for both days.

Individuals, hospitals, coalitions, community organizations, healthcare teams, physician practices and others who care for Iowa residents are encouraged to submit an application for the IHC Poster Symposium.
