I consider the IHI National Forum one of the best conferences in the country, and as usual this year’s forum exceeded my expectations. I live tweeted every session I attended and this post serves as a summary of those resources presented during the presentations.  You can see the entire Twitter summary curated by Symplur here, and my summary of the 2015 forum here.

EMS Note: There was one session on community paramedicine on Sunday run by the Northwell Health team, and one poster on the Geisinger program.  Other than that, to my knowledge, EMS was not represented (although ED level projects were prevalent).
