The 2012 unSUMMIT will be held on May 2-4, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Orange County in Anaheim, California. Heck, thatâ€™s right in my backyard. Looks like Iâ€™ll be attending.
Iâ€™ve attended the last two unSUMMITs; Atlanta in 2010 and Louisville in 2011. The conference is focused on barcoding at the point of care. While itâ€™s not as big as the ASHP conferences, itâ€™s full of people that want to learn about barcoding and patient safety. I found it valuable.
Anyway, I received an email yesterday calling for speakers. I presented at the unSUMMIT last year and found it to be quite rewarding. The 50 minutes I spent on stage opened the door for a lot of post presentation discussion with colleagues. If youâ€™ve gone through barcoding implementation at your facility, or are thinking about it, I would encourage you to not only attend the unSUMMIT, but consider presenting as well. Itâ€™s only through sharing information that we get better.
Hope to see you there.
