call for 2011 tap storyboards

Share your hospital’s story with a featured storyboard at the 2011 TAP Conference, held on September 15-17, 2011, at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa.

In the past, South Carolina hospitals have highlighted their quality and patient safety initiatives with storyboards at the TAP Conference. Storyboards have proven to be a fantastic opportunity to highlight the hard work our hospitals have done to improve health care across South Carolina.

We are eager to learn about your innovations in practice that tie in with our SCHA Reengineering efforts, showcasing creative ideas with measurable outcomes. Please note that your storyboards do not have to be quality or patient safety driven. Share your stories relating to collaborative team work and/or areas where you have made measurable advancement by improving population health, enhancing the patient experience and/or reducing the cost of care. Please have your storyboards displayed in a sports theme or playbook to coincide with the overall 2011 TAP Conference activities.

This year we are not linking the storyboards with the IHI National Conference, however, our submission guidelines follow the same criteria found in the 2011 IHI Storyboard Handbook. This handbook contains information on storyboard layout, content suggestions and other details to guide you through the submission process. Storyboards will need to be on display at the Hilton Head Marriott by noon, September 15.  Displays will be recognized during breakfast on September 16.

Please complete the Storyboard Registration Form and TAP Registration Form to secure your storyboard spot at the 2011 TAP Conference. For more information, see the Storyboard Details & Timeline and Storyboard Schedule of Events  or contact Mary Stargel,, (803) 744-3511. 

All storyboard applications along with the TAP registration, should be returned to Mary Stargel,, by August 30, 2011. 

Please help us make this year’s 2011 TAP conference a success by submitting your hospital’s innovation success stories.  We look forward to sharing your stories!
