About The Event
Attendees of all types, from C-Suite execs to Service Reps, can expect two days of sessions related to Post-Acute healthcare with a focus on how to maximize & streamline efficiency with HDMS. Sessions will vary in style from workshop, multi-presenter discussion, and panels.
Trying to decide who should attend from your organization? Networking during this event is a huge draw, as attendees will be surrounded by their peers and encouraged to make new connections as we host a casual Welcome Night on Monday Sept 9th, and in our Fun Night Competition on Tuesday Sept 10th.
Executives can expect to experience big picture sessions from professional coaches and Universal Client Innovators who have met the challenges of their market head on. Schedule one on one time with our sponsors to talk about existing vendor, service, or connectivity relationships; or begin new ones!
Management attendees can expect to see all of the new features of HDMS and StowPoint products in sessions where the software is live and incorporated into each lesson. Attend sessions that provide the shortcuts & decision points that will allow providers to bridge the gaps in service, inventory, and billing processes and with integration tools!
Team Leads, Super Users, & Everyday Users should expect to learn about areas of HDMS and StowPoint they are unfamiliar with or not utilizing. Attending live sessions will allow for a more immersive experience, empowering these users to head back to home base and disseminate the information that is most critical to their organizations.
