The Patient Experience Symposium

The Patient Experience Symposium is the annual Executive Summit dedicated exclusively to meeting the needs of hospital professionals. By reaching out to hundreds of executives providing us with their personal insight on the issues they feel are of the most important to them and not adequately covered in any existing forum, we are able to put together a top-notch program agenda that features some of the world’s leaders on the Patient Experience.



Healthcare Burnout Symposium

Physician and Nurse Leader burnout is a public health crisis that demands action across the entire healthcare ecosystem.  Burnout not only affects clinicians, but also the patients they serve. At the Physician Burnout Symposium, we will gather thought leaders and stakeholders for an annual two-day conference to address the multiple facets of burnout, such as time constraints, technology, and regulations.  Attendees will gain actionable solutions to implement within their health system.  In conjunction with the Sharp Index, this Symposium is dedicated to improving Physician and Nurse well-being.

Telehealth Unlocked

Telehealth Unlocked will give healthcare professionals the chance to hear from executives, clinicians, and technology leaders focused on improving the clinical process for patients and developing a long-term strategy for expanding the use of telehealth across the continuum of care.  In live and on-demand sessions, presenters will address topics such as providing equitable access to care, partnering with executive leadership to foster program growth, and preparing to address potential regulatory and legal uncertainties.
