IRVING CONVENTION CENTER  AT LAS COLINAS

Irving, TX 75039

At IES, we have a bold vision of what emergency medicine could be, and we strive to be the pacesetter that inspires others. Through the development of innovative processes and solutions, we seek to improve the way healthcare is practiced across the continuum of care and enhance the role of emergency medicine. The IES Quality Summit is held annually to share evidence-based practices that produce better quality outcomes and enhance the value that emergency medicine brings to overall healthcare delivery. As our 7th consecutive year, we are thrilled to announce this year’s Quality Summit keynote speaker is Lisa Bielamowicz, MD, President, and Co-Founder of Gist Healthcare and guest speaker Matthew Wetschler, MD.

The keynote address will feature Lisa Bielamowicz, MD, President, and Co-Founder of Gist Healthcare. As an expert on the healthcare landscape, the provider marketplace, and the strengths and challenges of the industry; Bielamowicz understands the needs of all healthcare stakeholders, from the C-suite executive to the frontline provider, from policymakers to employers to patients. She brings years of experience, communicating clear and actionable insights to help find solutions that will make healthcare more accessible, affordable, and reliable for consumers. Bielamowicz will discuss how these dynamic industry changes are impacting emergency medicine and, more specifically, what they mean for providers of emergency medicine.

Our guest speaker, Matthew Wetschler, MD, will discuss his personal experience of death, paralysis, and a remarkable recovery from a November 2017 accident that broke his neck and left him partially paralyzed. Wetschler, who completed his residency in emergency medicine at Stanford University before the accident, was drawn to medicine because of the social and humanist role of the physician. Weaving in his expertise of burnout and the psychology of elite-athletic performance, his lecture will distill valuable mental framework for self-optimization, resilience, durational effort, and, ultimately success inside intensely demanding and uncertain endeavors.

In addition to the education topics that have been assembled for this conference, the Summit will also feature a Quality Poster Contest. Each poster will highlight process improvement and quality program initiatives that demonstrate the tremendous value that emergency medicine brings to the overall delivery of healthcare.

The IES Quality Summit is open to providers, hospital administrators, and key stakeholders who are dedicated to enhancing the delivery of healthcare through emergency medicine. Providers will acquire tools and resources to enhance their practice through evidence-based continuing medical education (CME) and continuing education (CE) credits that will be offered. Due to the previous recordof attendance, we are anticipating approximately 400 emergency department healthcare providers from the Baylor Scott & White, JPS, surrounding and out-of-state emergency departments. Upon completion of the Summit, participants will be able to apply the latest advances in clinical applications, diagnoses, treatments and practice management necessary for enhanced patient care.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the 7th annual IES Quality Summit!

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

A national expert on delivery system transformation, Dr. Lisa Bielamowicz is known for being able to distill actionable insight from complex and conflicting market forces. Whether keynoting an industry conference or working with an executive team, her passion is increasing the pace of transformation in health care.

Lisa brings energetic, provocative discussion to every forum she leads. She presents at over 75 board meetings, leadership retreats, industry conferences, and executive strategy sessions annually.

She is a requested keynote speaker, and is regularly consulted by media, having been quoted in the New York Times, Modern Healthcare, Wall Street Journal, and Health Affairs.

Lisa’s work combines national-level insight with a deep understanding of local market dynamics and system strength. A trusted advisor to dozens of health systems and physician networks, executives call on Lisa to provide critical guidance on strategy and investments, and to serve as a partner in developing consensus toward a common vision.

Prior to founding Gist, Lisa was the Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of the Advisory Board Company, where she led the firm’s strategy and clinical research for over a decade and was the primary author of many publications on health system and physician strategy, population health and delivery transformation.

As a physician Lisa brings a clinical lens to her work and has a deep understanding of the dynamics of physician practice. She trained in diagnostic radiology at Johns Hopkins Hospital. A Howard Hughes fellow, she researched memory and learning using functional MRI at the National Institutes of Mental Health. She holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and sociology from Rice University, and received her MD with highest honors from Baylor College of Medicine, graduating first in her class.

GUEST SPEAKER

Dr. Matthew Wetschler is a physician, entrepreneur, ex-professional athlete, and expert on physician burnout. In 2017, he suffered a spinal cord injury while surfing, was diagnosed a quadriplegic but, remarkably, regained the ability to walk within only a few months. His case has redefined the standard of post-operative neurosurgical care at San Francisco General Hospital.

His presentation discusses his personal experience of death, paralysis, and a remarkable recovery. Weaving in his expertise of burnout and the psychology of elite-athletic performance he distills and shares valuable mental frameworks for self-optimization, resilience, and ultimately, success inside the intensely demanding medical environment.

Prior to his injury, Dr. Wetschler toured nationally to renowned institutions such as Harvard, Duke, and Stanford speaking. He has shared his new lecture at Fortune 500 companies, healthcare organizations, Silicon Valley startups, and was most recently the 2019 keynote speaker for the American Academy of Emergency Medicine.
