Background: "It’s kind of a thank you to everyone that’s participated in the program," said Vicki Glenzer, marketing coordinator for IHP. But the gathering will also allow a look forward. "Whereas they used to do everything by hand, health care is all computerized now," said Glenzer. Yet even with the increased reliance on computers, she notes, "Things are moving from hospital-based to clinic- and home-based."
