MHI’s Community Connections is a bi-annual event series designed to provide a forum for diverse stakeholders to discuss and develop solutions to pressing health care issues. A common table for the St. Louis region’s practicing clinicians, health care purchasers, health plans, and medical group leaders, Community Connections presents an opportunity to share experiences, perspectives, and ideas on strengthening health care in our community. Our inaugural event, “Building Bridges in Primary Care”, will explore the relationship between enhanced patient experience, increased clinician satisfaction, and improved health outcomes.
