What Past Attendees Have to Say

This is the best conference I’ve ever been to in all my years in healthcare…and that’s over 20 years

I can’t imagine a better summit. My brain is buzzing with all these new tools, resources, case studies, and innovative ideas and software. I’ll be back next year, and if next year is as good as this year, you’ll definitely have made a follower for life out of me.

This is by far the best conference I have attended. It was well planned and coordinated. Great job to the team for putting this amazing event together.

Same place, same time next year!! The best conference I’ve attended, fabulous job!

It definitely exceeded my expectations. A lot of conferences I go to, you take a lot information but it doesn’t have a practical application. This is completely different because I feel like I have a lot of information I’m excited about and can apply to my situation.

We talk about value-based care…this is a value-based conference. Considering what other conferences costs, the value I get out of this is tremendous.
