Our 2021 program centers around topics and technology for the future of health care. From a global pandemic to a new administration, several disruptive forces have impacted the health care industry over the last year plus, with more changes likely to come. During our two-and-a-half day event, we’ll discuss how the evolving landscape is impacting you and your customers and informing your business strategy.
