Putting Care at the Center is the annual conference of the National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs. It’s an opportunity for innovators and advocates for care delivery reform from across the country, both pioneers and newcomers, to meet, network, and create a shared agenda for the emerging field of complex care. Attendees include healthcare and social service providers, policymakers, researchers, advocates, complex care consumers and caregivers, and more.
Putting Care at the Center is held in a different city each year, co-hosted with a local organization. The first conference was in 2016 in Philadelphia; in 2017 it was in Los Angeles, co-hosted by Kaiser Permanente; in 2018 it was in Chicago, co-hosted by Rush University Medical Center and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; and in 2019 it was in Memphis, co-hosted by Regional One Health.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Putting Care at the Center 2020 has been postponed until 2021. The National Center will be hosting a virtual event in October 2020 — more details coming soon.
