This action-packed event focuses on developing resilient leaders, solving real-life problems, and fueling your passion for healthcare. The speaker line-up is comprised of clinicians and leaders who are in the field every day, working side-by-side with healthcare teams to deploy the exact strategies and tactics you will learn about at this event.

Learn evidence-based strategies in 50+ hands-on sessions across five specialized tracks focusing on topics relevant to administrators, clinicians, and staff. Customize your conference by attending all sessions in one track, or skip around to other tracks to make the experience your own. You will leave with tactics to improve results, change behaviors, and connect back to the passion that brought you into healthcare in the first place.

Tracks include:


Get the practical skills required for success in any leadership role in healthcare. These breakouts are designed to build skillsets around managing change, achieving organizational results, and creating meaningful goals. Participants will leave ready to immediately implement new ideas that will save time and increase the effectiveness of their teams. Learn how Studer Group's Evidence-Based LeadershipSM framework is the right model to build capable, agile leaders that help to create cultures of excellence.


Learn to create an environment where physicians want to practice. Sessions in this track are led by practicing physicians, and focus on key strategies to reengage valuable physician leaders and develop new talent. Attendees will leave with a toolbox of tactics designed to improve physician satisfaction, hardwire physician recruitment and retention, create buy-in, provide physician feedback, and address burnout.


Go on a journey through the ED to see and understand what patients experience during a visit. Attendees will learn leading practices to improve flow and throughput, and discover how the slightest changes in behavior make a big impact on overall patient experience.


Exclusively for senior executives and board members who are looking to gain education and alignment on the challenges and changes taking place in healthcare today. Gain essential knowledge of the external healthcare environment and how to effectively manage change. You will learn tactics around physician integration, mergers, consumerism, governance, culture, and more.


Organizations with a culture that focuses on patients are rewarded with higher clinical quality and efficiency, a safer patient environment, greater employee engagement, and improved financial results. This track provides an overview of the different CAHPS surveys and helps you understand what’s mandatory and what’s in development. You will walk away with tools, tactics, and proven behaviors that improve patient experience across the continuum and specifically relate to HCAHPS, CG CAHPS, and OAS CAHPS.
