GetWellNetwork's 10th GetConnected Conference Will Drive Discussion Around the Future of Connected Health


WASHINGTON, March 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- GetWellNetwork will host its 10th user conference from April 30 to May 3 in National Harbor, Md. The biennial event will bring together more than 500 attendees from hospitals and health systems around the country for three days of education, innovation and collaboration around the increasingly dynamic nature of how and where health care is delivered.

From adopting to optimizing to innovating, GetConnected 2018 will showcase the strategies, tools and technologies reshaping patient and family engagement — from the exam room to the living room and everywhere between. The conference's 70 sessions and more than 100 speakers, including four keynote presentations, will explore the limitless possibilities for connecting with patients at the right time, in the right place and with the right information based on their readiness to engage; a process GetWellNetwork has dubbed Precision Engagement.

"I'm excited to mark this milestone, our 10th conference, at such a transformative time in the industry. Health care consumers have outgrown the one-size-fits-all approach of the past," said Michael O'Neil, GetWellNetwork founder and chief executive officer. "Addressing the unique needs of each person throughout the care continuum means reinventing patient-centered care. How? And what does that look like? We're going to redefine it together at GetConnected 2018."



Three program tracks, designed to pull the thread of this year's theme of "Pioneering Precision Engagement" across the continuum of care, give health care organizations the stage to share how they're utilizing patient engagement solutions across care settings.

  • Adopting — showcasing best practices for getting started with patient care technology and hardwiring Precision Engagement
  • Advancing & Optimizing — focusing on making meaningful improvements to patient outcomes through guided interactions and prescribed pathways
  • Innovating — highlighting organizations on the cutting edge when it comes to using technology to inspire patients to own their care journey

"Through thoughtful conversations that connect health care's clinical, technology and patient experience leaders, we aim to surface breakthrough ideas and actionable tactics to help navigate an industry in transition," said Dr. Karen Drenkard, conference chair and GetWellNetwork chief clinical and nursing officer. "Together, we'll create a shared vision for a more consumer-driven and participatory patient and family experience."


In addition to session programming, attendees will have a chance to test drive the latest innovations in the conference expo hall, collaborate with experts in hands-on workshops and interactive demos and pitch ideas for future innovations in Shark Tank-style presentations. Capping off the first day of the conference, the Precision Engagement Awards ceremony will recognize industry members who are redefining the patient and family experience and demonstrating consistent performance improvement.
