Register for one or both days of the conference! Day one is a live virtual format. Speakers will be available to answer questions during the questions/answer time periods.

Day two is the HACK4Person-CenteredCare where the goal is to leave with concrete, workable solutions to implement to address a person-centered health and human service issue. You can attend day two either in person or virtually.

Prior to HACK4Person-CenteredCare, participants will complete a survey and grouped into teams based on shared goals, interests, or challenges. Or, an existing team can register together and use the process of the hackathon to solve an issue.

An experienced facilitator from the non-profit, business, health care, technology, or public policy sector will lead each team.

Working together, each team will identify a person-centered need or challenge, brainstorm innovative solutions to put into practice, and evaluate the commercial viability of their proposed product. The goal is to leave with concrete, workable solutions to implement. Innovation at its finest!


This conference gives practical guidance and supports innovative thought to better integrate and collaborate across the interdisciplinary team with the goal of improving the practice of person-centered care. The interprofessional toolkit and conference have been created to give practical guidance to better innovate, integrate and collaborate across disciplines and health care sectors with the goal of improving the practice of person-centered care.

Conference participants receive an interprofessional toolkit designed to facilitate person-centered care best practices.


The health care industry in the United States is in a constant and dramatic state of change. Large-scale issues such as increasing costs, constant technology changes and the shift from a fee-for-service model to a value-driven model all contribute to reshaping how health care providers envision and deliver quality service.

Key components of a successful care approach include actively engaging people and caregivers in the decisions about healthcare, treating people with dignity and respect, bridging our fragmented systems, creating, and promoting user-friendly access to patient medical records, and co-creating health plans. The fields of health and social services are naturally guided by these principles. However, we all recognize the need to strengthen, create and further embed them into practice.

Global Objectives

  1. Identify strategies that address barriers to the implementation of PCC
  2. Evaluate and apply current research, resources, and best practices of PCC across sectors
  3. Compare and contrast innovative strategies to implement and strengthen PCC practices
  4. Discuss the current landscape of person-centered care
  5. Identify strategies to enhance coordination and transitions of care across health and human services
