UK to host conference on collaboration and innovation in health care

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 24, 2023) — The Center for Innovation in Population Health, housed in the UK College of Public Health announces the 19th annual Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM) Conference, titled “Lex Go! Pop Health,” taking place Oct. 4-6 at the Hyatt Regency Lexington. 

The TCOM annual conference is a premier event in the health care industry, focused on person-centered care and collaborative approaches to improving patient outcomes management. Bringing together helping professionals from around the world to share ideas and discuss the latest advancements in the field, the conference provides an invaluable opportunity for students to learn about the latest research, innovative practices, and current trends in population health. 

Students can network with professionals in the field — including health care executives, researchers, and policymakers, gaining valuable insights into potential career paths and the challenges and opportunities facing health care today. This year, TCOM will be in Lexington, making it easier for UK students to participate. Common conference themes include the importance of collaborative approaches to health care management and the need for innovation and creative thinking to achieve transformational outcomes in health care. 

Students are encouraged to submit a poster abstract for a chance to present posters, and to attend the conference to engage in meaningful conversations with professionals, exchange ideas, and learn about the real-world challenges and successes of health care management.
