Please join us to review 2019 regional data and share practice. You’ll see how your site is doing as compared to sites across the region, and how our region is doing as compared to the rest of the country. A big focus of our annual meeting is to identify variance across the region and invite clinicians and hospital leaders to share their practice in areas where they excel. COAP provides a safe forum for assessubg outcomes, sharing ideas, and discussing challenges in practice. We bring providers together to foster collaboration and strengthen patient care across the region.
