“ATLAS is an invaluable conference that brings together leaders from health systems across the country to share ideas and best practices on their approach to patient access, as well as key related topics like provider engagement and change management,” said Molly Suwinski, Chief Access Officer at USF Health. “I look forward to returning this year and engaging with the leaders at this year’s event so we can inspire and empower each other to continue transforming the patient experience and advancing systemness across our organizations.”

During the three-day event, executives from patient access, patient experience, innovation, marketing, and clinical functions will discuss a range of timely topics. The program includes breakout tracks focused on driving health systems’ digital transformations, exploring new frontiers of patient access, and positioning access as a strategic imperative. This year’s speakers include executives from Providence St. Joseph Health, Christiana Care Health System, Piedmont Healthcare, Geisinger Health, USF Health, and more. Prior to the main event, Kyruus will be hosting its annual Customer Forum, as well as a new Clinical Summit, which will bring clinical leaders together to discuss topics like driving physician engagement and preventing burnout.

“We’ve seen patient access rise rapidly as a priority for health systems over the last several years – irrespective of organization size, type, or location,” said Graham Gardner, CEO of Kyruus. “As M&A activity in healthcare continues at its rapid pace, it is becoming even more imperative that organizations think about access across the entire system.
