Attendee Acclaim:

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.

– Senior Vice President, Network Development and Contracting, Cone Health

Keynotes were excellent and a 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 experiences with the health care industry.
