Highlighting the insights and innovations that come from providers who are seeing firsthand what patients and their caregivers are facing, industry leaders will share how they stay motivated, ensure the voice of the patient is at the center of all they do and how they spot and act on new ideas which expand and/or improve healthcare provisioning and the patient experience.
