Utah Healthcare Solutions Summit

Bottom line—when it comes to healthcare, consumers and companies want to know how to control rising costs. But healthcare is a complex system, and as you unravel one knot, you find three more. End-of-life care. Expensive medicines. Lack of transparency at multiple levels. Personalized treatment. Misaligned incentives.

The second annual Utah Healthcare Solutions Summit will tease apart some of these issues that impact all of us as consumers, business decision makers and healthcare providers.

The Utah Healthcare Solutions Summit will be held on September 13 at The Grand America in downtown Salt Lake City. Breakout sessions will focus on consumerism & transparency, innovation & ethics, specialty pharmaceuticals & personalized medicine, and population health.

The summit will also include the annual Utah Business Healthcare Heroes Award Luncheon, celebrating excellence and innovation within the healthcare system. The honorees include physicians who go the extra mile, administrators who’ve helped transform their organizations, compassionate volunteers and others who have made a meaningful impact on healthcare in Utah.

Utah Healthcare Summit attendees can expect to walk away with valuable insights and practical, usable ideas, as well as new connections that can help the future of their businesses.

Please join us on September 13 for one of the most important healthcare events in the state of Utah.
