Sponsored by Contec, Inc.
Wednesday September 26, 2018
8:15 AM - 9:15 AM


The traditional health care model is being challenged by large, innovative companies who are developing the capability for a more convenient, contemporary, high-tech healthcare experience. To remain relevant in this far more demanding environment, legacy health care systems need to learn from these new entrants and improve cost structure and remove the “friction” in the health care experience.
