SAN DIEGO, Sept. 30, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Skylight Healthcare Systems, the leading provider of interactive patient care systems, announced that its President and CEO, David Schofield, will deliver an informational presentation entitled "Improving the Patient Experience and Recovery Process through the Care Continuum" at the 2010 Planetree Annual Conference, October 5th through 8th at the Denver Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.
