The Healthcare Systems Engineering Institute's annual summer conference, "Gathering of the Fellows", facilitates a cross-disciplinary community where healthcare improvement fellows share project results, learn from each other, and develop intertwined networks. The common denominator of this intermingling of several healthcare improvement communities is a focus on healthcare improvement.
Any healthcare improvement fellows are invited to attend. Day 1 is a sharing day, typically consisting of a mix of presentations, panels, and posters sessions. Day 2 is a learning day, with education and exercises about a unifying theme such as lean, variation, statistical control charts, innovation, and simulation. Attendees can be current or past fellows, and can present work as a poster or short presentation.
