ASCO Chief Medical Officer to Speak at Upcoming Fall Conference

October 4, 2017

ASCO Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Richard L. Schilsky, MD, FACP, FASCO, FSCT, will participate in a panel discussion at ECRI Institute’s 24th Annual Conference on workarounds in clinical care on November 28-29, at Georgetown University.

His session, “When Workarounds are the Norm in Clinical Care,” will examine important questions surrounding workarounds such as:

  • Do workarounds lead to better care and innovation, or are they symptoms of dysfunction and disarray?
  • How do workarounds affect safety, as well as work burden and costs?
  • Can the use of simulation exercises help bridge the gaps that arise between standardized care and on the ground exigencies of patient care?

During the session on November 28, Dr. Schilsky will be joined by Steven J. Stack, MD, and Ellen S. Deutsch, MD, MS.

The annual conference enhances the emerging national dialog on practice efficiency and institutional culture and its effects on care. This year’s conference focuses on changes in workflow for clinicians, health systems, and patients as an increasingly significant issue in the delivery of care.

Registration is now open for the 24th Annual ECRI Institute Annual Conference, a free public service conference. See additional session topics by visiting the preliminary agenda and initial list of confirmed speakers.
