The Journey to Outcomes Improvement
9 Reasons to Attend HAS’15
1 – Industry-Leading Keynote Speakers
It is hard to think about matching or exceeding last year’s keynote speakers, but we’re trying to do it. We are very excited about who we have signed up so far even though we’re holding off on announcing the names until we have a full lineup. But like last year, we will have a well-known personality sharing analytics best practices outside of healthcare, multiple healthcare CEOs sharing their analytical learnings, and several famous business leaders teaching key principles in organizational excellence and innovation.
2 – CME accreditation for clinicians – NEW THIS YEAR
Many of you have asked us about whether HAS’15 qualifies as a continuing medical education (CME) activity. We are particularly pleased to announce that this activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditT™.*
3 – More Case Study Sessions
Our goal is to significantly increase the number and variety of health system case studies addressing a wider range of clinical, technical, operational, and financial examples. We will provide a consistent, pragmatic approach to sharing best practices and key learnings to help you accelerate the learning curve in your organization.
4 – Hands-On Experiences for Teams or Individuals
Lectures alone are insufficient for real learning, so we will continue to provide experiences where you can engage in team-based activities, role plays and discussions. We introduced the concept of “ah ha” experiences last year, and we’ll continue to use interesting educational examples, vignettes, and audience-based activities to demonstrate key principles in fun and memorable ways. Bring your entire team for the greatest impact or come alone and we’ll organize you into ad-hoc teams.
5 – Analytics-Driven Engagement
Analytics will continue to flow through the three-day summit touching every aspect of the agenda. We are already building our next version of the HAS event application for each attendee. We’ll have innovations in our real-time polling, networking, question and answer, and gamification experiences and some new interactions and analytics using i-beacon location sensing technology.
6 – Networking
We’ll give you more time and options this year to network with each other, using analytics in creative ways to allow you to find and connect with more people.
7 – Pre-Summit Classes and Training
This year we will provide an early half-day of pre-session classes and training options specifically for Health Catalyst clients. These will occur separately from the general HAS’15 general industry sessions.
8 – Affordable and Packed With Value
We have expanded the variety and types of information presented while keeping the summit more affordable than any other similar event we know of. We especially want this summit to be optimized for teams and know that keeping it very affordable helps for more team attendance.
9 – Early Registration Offer for HAS’14 Attendees
This year, we have limited rooms available at the Grand America Hotel. There is a very large convention during the same week of HAS’14 which has bought up most of the rooms in downtown Salt Lake. We have reserved as many rooms as possible and want to offer the best rooms and room rates to last year’s attendees. So for a limited time, we are able to offer a normally priced $229/night room rate for $139/night to those that attended last year and register in between March 14 and April 17. After that time, the Grand America room rates will still be discounted but increase to $189/night. Register now to get the best room rate possible.
