The fourth Annual Thought Leadership on Access Symposium (ATLAS) is officially less than one month away!

The conference schedule is live and filled with dynamic speakers from forward-thinking hospitals and health systems across the country joining us for this year’s ATLAS. The program is filled with presentations and panels centered around our theme—Patient Access in Focus: Staying Ahead in a Shifting Landscape. Here are a few schedule highlights:

Tuesday, September 19th

  • Following a user forum for Kyruus customers on Tuesday morning, ATLAS will kick off Tuesday afternoon with lunch for all attendees and a keynote presentation from Brent Gleeson, Taking Point: Principles for Leading Through Change. Gleeson will share battle-tested principles that leaders can use to drive organizational change.
  • Following the keynote, we will hear from our first panel: Innovating Around the Enterprise-wide Patient Experience. Next, Matt Gove, Chief Consumer Officer from Piedmont Healthcare, will discuss steps the health system took to place a greater focus on consumers. After that, we’ll explore the topic of Patient Access in an Evolving Political Landscape. With a new and rapidly evolving political climate, this panel will explore the impact on how health systems operate and patients access care.
  • On Tuesday evening, we’ll head to Boston’s World Famous Skywalk Observatory. Fifty floors up, attendees will enjoy a one-of-a-kind city view while networking with fellow healthcare leaders making a difference in patient access.

Wednesday, September 20th

  • The second day will begin with a morning of three breakout tracks, each with three sessions, focused on the evolution of provider networks, the rise of digital consumerism, and the shift to centralized access, giving attendees a chance to delve deeper into their topic of choice.
  • After the panels, we’ll come back together to hear from industry innovators at health systems such as Piedmont Healthcare, Providence St. Joseph Health, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and more through panels and presentations. This includes a panel on Innovating to Put Patient Experience in the Spotlight.
  • The afternoon will conclude with our second keynote presentation by Paul DePodesta on Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game. DePodesta will share how leaders can leverage the moneyball methodology to drive change and improve processes in healthcare.
  • ATLAS will conclude with a tour and networking event at Fenway Park, “Boston’s Historic Ballpark.” Following the tour, attendees will have a chance to engage and exchange best practices with other thought leaders in patient access.
