For the next couple of days I’m going to be spending much of my time at a symposium hosted by Mayo Clinic (my employer) on transforming health care. It’s called Transformation: A Symposium on Innovative Health Care Delivery. Here’s symposium registration site that gives background on the event, and here’s the blog where several others and I will be writing about the sessions. We have a great roster of speakers, and the discussion should be quite stimulating. I’m hoping many of the participants will have brought laptops so they can contribute to the continuing discussion on the symposium blog, and we’re also planning to eventually have a podcast of the audio from the presentations.
I’ve liveblogged at several other conferences before; this is the first time I will have done it at a Mayo Clinic-sponsored conference. What better one to use as a starting point than a conference on innovation? Most of my posts will likely be at the symposium blog, but as I learn things that might be interesting to readers of this blog I will cross-post here, too.
The good part about being at a conference at work is that I can keep up on some other projects, and step out for meetings when absolutely necessary. The bad part is it can be hard to engage as fully as when I get away.
