Now that the noise around HIMSS is fading out, we can now look forward to the time of year when two exceptional conferences focused on clinical quality and patient experience bring thousands of passionate clinicians, administrators and patient experience professionals together for several days of thought leadership, education, innovation, and camaraderie.

AONE’s annual meeting, AONE 2018 Inspiring Leaders, will be held April 12-15 in Indianapolis. The Beryl Institute’s Patient Experience Conference 2018 will be taking place April 16-18 in Chicago. At TruthPoint, we’re eagerly anticipating the opportunity to glean new insights and gain new perspectives from the many experts and frontline healthcare professionals we’ll have the honor to interact with at these events.

You are the ones who are making sure that patients are being cared for 24/7/365 and will continue to be the primary caretakers and contact points for healthcare service delivery, despite the proliferation of new technology options.  In fact, in 2017 more than 78,000 new healthcare apps were introduced providing a total of 325,000 on the market! While apps are increasingly being used by healthcare organizations to engage patients. Apps don’t care for patients. People do.

At AONE and The Beryl Institute conferences this year, we’re hoping to have an opportunity to talk with many of you about achieving patient experience and performance excellence.  We share your mission of delivering safe, high quality care in a manner that is respectful, empathetic, and compassionate.  We know technology can enhance clinical workflow, create efficiencies and help to improve care and service, we also know that people are, and will continue to be, the most important part of care delivery.

Healthcare is about caring for people. That’s our core. And yours. We’re looking forward to seeing you this spring!
