  • Panel Discussion - Moderated, interactive Q&A sessions representing various perspectives on a topic;

  • Practical, insightful presentations, not sales-oriented presentations. Attendees are looking for information they can use when they get back to their respective healthcare organizations.
  • Attendees are particularly interested in case studies. Proposals should offer tangible value to the audience including real world perspectives, lessons learned, best practices, and performance metrics.
  • If you are a service provider looking to secure a place on the agenda, your session proposal will be substantially strengthened by a healthcare provider customer.
  • Full contact information for all speakers is needed in order to get them confirmed as speakers and get them registered as guest attendees.
