2018 Results for Health Conference: Using Results-Based Accountability to Strengthen Health Improvement
May 16-18 2018
Crowne Plaza Resort | Asheville, North Carolina 

WNC is excited to be hosting the first Results-Based Accountability conference focused specifically on health improvement! This event will highlight and support innovation and collaboration taking place around the United States.

Here’s why you should join us…
The Results for Health conference will help you produce measurable results and improve the health of your clients and communities.

In the health sector, our work is guided by the desire to create cultures of quality, to deliver excellence in programs and services, and to improve the lives of children, families, and adults. To fully execute that bold vision, organizations must successfully address these key questions:

  • What are the right measures to evaluate community health and program performance?
  • How do you use data to drive quality improvement and make the most of the data you already have?
  • How do you develop and implement the right strategies to make a difference?
  • What are the right tools and skills to strengthen internal capacity and create the highest return on investment?
