Startups Welcome to Attend WHCC
What a great experience to be at the Congress. It was amazing to see the wealth of knowledge and leaders from various facets of health care assemble at the World Health Care Congress. Because of the interaction, participation, and networking at the event, I know I'm not alone in the effort to continue transforming health and health care. The future is bright for us all – thanks to the Congress for organizing the event.
Very much appreciate the opportunity to participate in WHCC this year. It's one of my favorite industry events.
It was a fantastic conference. My first time. What a great combination of content and networking. I met more people I ‘should have known by now' at this meeting than any in recent memory, including someone working on the policy side of what I have been doing operationally for 15 years – who it turns out was in college with me but we'd never met.
This was my first time attending it and I was pleasantly surprised by the breadth of topics covered. It was excellent opportunity to interact with various streams of Health care industry.
I really enjoyed my session. The delegates were clearly engaged in the discussion and the Q & A.
Great event with rich content, thoughtful ideas and valuable information.
The World Health Care Congress” is a great opportunity to listen, learn, think, interact and develop, regardless of where you are in health care. The combination of large venue, high profile speakers and panelists combined with smaller, more intimate settings optimal for interactions is the perfect forum for meaningful development to occur.
The World Congress was an amazing collection of thought leaders and front line leaders in health care. All were very generous and open with their opinions and insight and I highly recommend this conference.
I thought the entire conference was extremely well done and the interview studio was no exception!
Great networking opportunity and good information.
The Congress was superior. WHCC is to be commended for its efforts to make a difference in the years to come with the information shared at the event. Bravo!!

I feel this conference gives you the ‘best bang for your buck' based on all of the selections you can make during your attendance. I went between bundled payments, behavioral health, data and technology to have a well-rounded experience.
– Eric Jones, Director of Claims Management, Community Behavioral Health
Keynotes were excellent and good cross of senior leaders in the industry. Breakouts provide more detail and applications of concept. This isn't a conference where you attend and come away with a list of the magic bullets to change practice. What I appreciate from the World Congress is the conversations of the keynotes and panelists that are reactions to and experience with the health care industry.

The primary benefit of this combined health care congress is the 40,000 foot view that it supplies of the current health care landscape As a provider, I want to see all perspectives of the trending issues, not just those concerning my silo. This allows me to provide more value and to be a more compassionate advocate for my patients.
