Our Fall 2020 LIVE Online Community Conference hashtag - #ICNCC20F - was created via Symplur and the Healthcare Hashtag Project, which is aimed at connecting the dots in healthcare social media. By including #ICNCC20F in posts and tweets from and about the LOCC we can generate and share learning and ideas, make connections with our colleagues and community, and spread awareness of ImproveCareNow and IBD.

About the ImproveCareNow Community Conference

ImproveCareNow Community Conferences happen twice a year. While our community works together across the miles throughout the year, these (traditionally in-person) meetings provide an opportunity to work on developing and spreading QI and research skills and approaches; fueling our Network's use of data to drive and evaluate QI efforts; and developing partnerships that will lead to improved care processes and outcomes in pediatric IBD. The Fall 2020 Community Conference represents the second time ImproveCareNow will offer this event fully online.
