Among the topics of discussion for ENGAGE at HLTH:

How do we fix healthcare? We listen to patients. Our health system is riddled with challenges at every corner, but no single group feels the impact more acutely than patients. Hear a panel of empowered patients and enlightened companies discuss their unique health journeys and how they would like to overhaul our broken system.

Can AI chatbots help improve the patient experience? Artificial Intelligence, while questionably overhyped, is being leveraged in various aspects of health, from medical imaging to drug development to gleaning data insights and patient matching for clinical trials. Learn how AI is being utilized to engage with patients and better guide them along their health journey.

Prioritizing the patient experience How do we design our operations around keeping our patients’ needs priority number one? What challenges hinder our efforts? An expert panel of chief patient experience officers from leading hospitals discuss their learnings and ongoing initiatives.

Additionally, the HLTH conference will also include programs spotlighting startups including:
