Who Should Attend

“One of the best conferences I’ve ever been to … and I’ve been to a lot of conferences.”

We have optimized this summit for many types of healthcare organizations, roles, and situations.

Unfortunately, this year we are not able to accommodate vendors or service providers due to capacity constraints. So, who is this summit designed for? We thought it would be helpful to describe who would best be served by attending this summit.

What Are Some of the Challenges We Are Addressing In This Summit?

  • Who are the new digital innovators using data to shake up the marketplace?  We’ll hear from innovators in many spaces and including broadening to innovative payers, employers, and hospital-of-the-future examples.
  • How are digital innovators competing against the status quo and how can you recognize and stay in front of them?
  • How quickly are AI and machine learning advancements happening in the industry?  And what is needed for quicker acceleration?
  • Is value-base care accelerating or slowing down? And where are the value-based care models coming from?
  • Why does only 8% of the data needed for population health and precision medicine currently reside in typical transactional systems like EHRs? How can we free the data that is trapped in transactional systems?  Where will the rest of the data needed will come from?
  • How quickly digital apps are proliferating that are collecting patient data?  How can we get that data into our system?
  • How will patients of the future will have the ability to collect and monitor their own data?

What Types Of Organizations And Roles Usually Face These Struggles?

  • Provider oriented C-level executives, physician leaders, nurse leaders, patient safety and quality leaders, IT leaders, analysts and analytics leaders, front-line cross functional teams, and healthcare consultants advising these teams.
  • Innovative payer and employer groups developing new data-driven models that are improving and transforming healthcare.
  • Physician groups, single or multi-hospital systems, large hospitals, integrated delivery networks, academic medical centers, small community hospitals, payer networks, ACOs or other types of accountable care or population health initiatives with health organizations.

Who Should Not Attend

Vendors, sponsors, or consultants trying to sell to attendees.

This is a highly educational-oriented experience, not a vendor or sales oriented summit. Therefore due to space constraints and past feedback, we are not able to accommodate vendor or service provider attendance. Also, teams that are so consumed in developing or implementing an EMR that they don’t yet have the bandwidth to give analytics the attention it deserves should not attend. An EMR is a critical foundation that is a precursor to but not sufficient for successful analytics.
