One of the most valuable ways to learn is through interaction with your peers. Our “Speed Networking” session will provide an opportunity to meet speakers and attendees who have similar pop health challenges and discuss solutions to those potential obstacles. Mingle, share and learn in this unique, rapid fire and interactive environment.

If you missed a speaker during Monday’s concurrent afternoon sessions on data, care coordination, and patient engagement, here’s your chance to talk to that speaker.

Each speaker will be stationed at a table in the ballroom and attendees can circulate and speak one-on-one with individual speakers.

This is a great opportunity to gather information that addresses your organization’s specific pop health challenges.
