From Fragmentation to Integration:
A Triple Aim Imperative 


Last year, CFHA hosted its 16th annual conference, "From Fragmentation to Integration: A Triple Aim Imperative" at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington DC, October 16-18, 2014.  

Recognizing fragmentation in healthcare is pervasive and manifested through institutionalized barriers in our financial, operational and clinical systems, the goal of the 2014 CFHA Conference was to advance the understanding that broad adoption and sustainability of collaborative care is fundamental to the achievement of *Triple Aim: better patient experience, better population health, and lower cost.
The three-day conference included preconference workshops; four plenary sessions and more than 50 breakout sessions.
