“The AI Advantage: Innovating for Financial Health, Workforce Stability, and Quality of Care”

While artificial intelligence (AI) offers amazing tools to enhance patient safety, improve quality, develop new therapies, and better manage costs, how AI is implemented will determine its level of success as it offers both great promise and peril.

Dr. Chaiken will incorporate his 25 years of experience in health care information technology, clinical transformation, and business intelligence during this keynote presentation to help you learn the basic steps needed to leverage AI effectively with best practices and an understanding of the risk and benefits of the technology in a clinical setting.

KHA Ruby Anniversary Gala

KHA Ruby Anniversary Gala

When you attend the KHA Annual Convention, you won’t want to miss out on celebrating KHA’s 95 years of serving the hospitals of Kentucky at the KHA Ruby Anniversary Gala on Tuesday, May 21!

All convention attendees are welcome to attend this event, which will feature:

  • Cocktail hour with a signature drink
  • Dinner
  • Live music by the Endless Summer Band
  • Raffle for a Ruby Pendant necklace

The raffle will benefit Veterans Resources United of Central/Southeastern Kentucky (VRUCK) and Hildegard House. Be sure to bring cash to enter the raffle and enjoy the cash bar after using your two complimentary drink tickets!

Cocktail Attire
Elevated cocktail attire is often used interchangeably with formal cocktail attire. Similarly, the term indicates a more formal-leaning dress code. Think: somewhere between semi-formal and black-tie. When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a nice dress or a classic suit and tie.

If you have any questions, please contact Claire Riley at KHA for more information.
