Huron Studer Group Conferences

What's Right in Health Care®

Nashville • August 21 - 23, 2018

This conference is different because the majority of sessions (with the exception of keynotes) are presented by high performing leaders of healthcare organizations around the country. In breakout sessions, senior leaders, managers, and frontline staff will share best practices for achieving the results we all want and making a positive difference in the lives of patients. Each organization that presents at the conference was chosen for demonstrated excellence in at least one area across the continuum of care.

Get to know our closing keynote, Marcus Engel, and his charismatic seeing eye dog, Elliott, in their latest eBook, "Five Patient Experience Lessons From My Seeing Eye Dog".
