The Annual Thought Leadership on Access Symposium (ATLAS) is a conference for healthcare executives and thought leaders to meet and exchange best practices on improving the patient experience. Through engaging presentations, panels, and networking events, attendees have the opportunity to gain powerful insights to take back to their organizations about enhancing patient access, care coordination, provider network management, digital engagement, and more.
As the 4th ATLAS conference grows near, we are excited to announce some new additions to the program and other highlights. Here’s our top five reasons why you won’t want to miss out on ATLAS 2017:
- The theme this year’s conference is Patient Access in Focus: Staying Ahead in a Shifting Landscape. This theme will allow us to explore ways to navigate and manage the challenges facing the healthcare industry today, as well as opportunities for innovation, while keeping patient access top of mind.
- New this year: breakout tracks. The individual tracks will follow three overarching themes:
- The Rise of Digital Consumerism
- The Shift to Centralized Access
- The Evolution of Provider Networks
Within each track, we will be featuring dynamic presenters and panelists who can speak on a wide range of patient access topics. We are honored to have thought leaders from health systems across the country confirmed to speak including Cleveland Clinic, Banner Health, Providence St. Joseph Health, Atrius Health, and many more.
