On behalf of the University of Pittsburgh and the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education, we thank everyone who was able to join us at All Together Better Health VII, June 6 through 8, 2014, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.
The program was designed to:

  • Cultivate a global vision for collaborative practice in health care,
  • Discuss new models of interprofessional care,
  • Promote and disseminate research in the field,
  • Explore educational strategies to prepare a “collaboration ready” workforce, and
  • Inform national and international policy.

All Together Better Health (ATBH) is the leading global interprofessional practice and education conference. The conference brings together providers, health system executives, educators, policymakers, and healthcare industry leaders to advance interprofessionalism locally, regionally and worldwide. Previous conferences in the All Together Better Health series have been held in in Kobe, Japan; Sydney, Australia; Stockholm, Sweden; London, England; and Vancouver, British Columbia. We were pleased to serve as host for the first ATBH conference in the United States.
All Together Better Health VII built on the themes of previous ATBH conferences. Reflecting the contemporary focus on improving health care and population health while lowering costs, the conference was organized around the following themes within the context of interprofessional practice and education:

  • New models of interprofessional practice and team-based care;
  • Aligning reimbursement with interprofessional care delivery and the economics;
  • Educating teams and integrating advanced practice providers in the clinical practice environment;
  • Educational redesign to prepare a "collaboration ready" healthcare workforce;
  • Legal and policy environment;
  • Technology applications (e.g., electronic health records, telehealth, e-health, social media, etc.); and Theories, models, measurement and evaluation.
