The University of Kentucky Center for Innovation in Population Health and the Praed Foundation are hosting a 3-day international 19th Annual TCOM Conference. Presentations at the annual conference reflect the use of Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM) and its tools.

TCOM is the conceptual framework for the ANSA, CANS, FAST, SSIT, CAT and other TCOM organizational tools. It is used to manage systems, organizations, and programs whose mission is to help people change their lives in an important way.

The Conference Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: 

  • Discuss how to communicate to families/individuals, and other professionals in the field through a common language.
  • Review the TCOM framework and how it guides the development of a shared vision for the people we serve, providers and systems.
  • Describe how to implement TCOM tools effectively.
  • Use person-centered data to show change and outcomes.

Come join us at “Lex Go! Pop Health” and learn how TCOM can help you make a difference by creating systems that care.

History of the TCOM Conference

The annual TCOM Conference started in 2004 and was originally branded as the CANS Conference. The CANS (Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths) was the first tool developed under the TCOM framework in the theory of Communimetrics. Since then, the entire collaboration has grown to 160,000 people who certify on the TCOM tools each year. The tools have also expanded to reflect the breadth and depth of the population we all serve.

Who Attends the TCOM Conference

For nearly two decades, the national TCOM Conference has provided a platform for the field to meet up, develop their skills, and share their knowledge. We invite all that are interested in TCOM or curious about the work that we do to attend our annual event. Presentation topics vary from data analytics, implementation, family support, and many others. We hope all that are involved in TCOM (research, coaching, family advocates, and more) attend our annual TCOM Conference.
