COAP 2020, Part One
June 10th, 8:00am – 10:00am
COAP’s annual in-person meeting is canceled this year due to Covid 19. In lieu of this, we invite you to participate in two 2-hour webinars with the first one June 10th and the second one in October (date TBD).
On June 10th, join COAP and colleagues from across the region to review 2019 year-end data and share best practice. You’ll see how your hospital is doing as compared to hospitals across the region, and how our region compares to the rest of the country. Top performing sites will share practice for both PCI and cardiac surgery. COAP brings providers together to foster collaboration and strengthen patient care across the region.
While registration is required, there is no cost for this webinar and no limit to the number of attendees from each site. Please rally your full team! To register, click here.
