Session tracks 

To provide our attendees with compelling, customized content, our agenda is broken into 5 main tracks. These tracks are designed to address the educational needs of the care settings in attendance.  

  • Technology and Innovation: Technology will continue to be an important component of your organization, especially as your team navigates the shift to value-based care, the growing staffing shortage, and other key industry trends. In this track, we'll focus on the latest technological advancements in healthcare, and how they may impact you and your team in the coming year. 

  • Care Delivery and Patient Engagement: Your patients and clients are at the heart of everything you do. In this session, we'll focus on clinical trends, regulations, and success stories that can help your team deliver amazing care every day.  

  • Strategy and Operations: Consumerism, the staffing shortage, and virtual care are just some of the trends impacting healthcare today, but navigating these and ensuring organizational success can be a challenge. In these sessions, we'll focus on the trends that are causing seismic shifts in the healthcare industry. Thought leaders will provide actionable takeaways that can help your organization continue to operate efficiently and effectively in the face of change. 

  • Analytics: Interactions with clients and patients generate hundreds of thousands of data points for your organization. Understanding how to capture, use, and report on these is critical for your team's success. In this track, we'll focus on trends in data, analytics, and predicative analytics, and explain how they can help your organization better identify at-risk patients, support clinical decision-making, and more. 

  • Health Equity: Disparities in healthcare have always existed. However, COVID-19 brought these disparities sharply into focus. In this track, we’ll focus on ways health systems, post-acute providers, and community organizations can collaborate to improve health equity in communities across the country.
