2020 will be crucial for hospitals and our country. There’s no question that technology will keep transforming healthcare. We’ll hear from Dr. Stephen Klasko, president of Jefferson Health, often cited as one of our field’s most innovative leaders. He will show us how technology and strategic agility can disrupt the status quo and enhance the quality of care. We’ll also look at the political landscape, new pressures on cost/transparency, and patient safety. Register today and bring a group from your organization!
