COAP Annual Statewide Meeting


JUNE 6, 2017 | 
7:30 AM to 4:30 PM

The Clinical Outcomes Assessment Program (COAP) will hold its annual statewide meeting June 6, 2017 from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM at the Conference Center at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Please join your colleagues from across the state as we discuss the year in data, highlight hospitals that have significantly moved the needle, and share best practices. This year we are excited to roll out COAP’s new Blood Use Initiative, in partnership with WSHA–a statewide campaign to reduce blood use in cardiac surgery in all hospitals across the state.  We will share best practice guidelines for patient blood management, host regional experts to field your questions, and outline resources available to your facilities.

COAP is excited to offer two keynote speakers this year:  Dr. Jeptha Curtis, Associate Professor  in Cardiovascular Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine, and Gary Kaplan, internal medicine physician; Chairman and CEO of Virginia Mason Health System. Best practices will be shared for increasing early extubation, reducing readmissions for both cardiac surgery and PCI, increasing radial access PCI, and reducing door to balloon times across systems of care. Other topics include engaging physicians in the data and out of hospital cardiac arrest/minimizing futile care. Our annual statewide data review will focus on key metrics deemed significant by regional experts, who will also present the data and serve on panels to invite your questions and ideas.  Please join us!
