Facing the Facts (Paradigms)
We'll kick off the Transform symposium with a panel discussion of renowned experts. They'll provide a reality check by busting through the myths that are holding back progress and identifying common ground for making better decisions about the future of health and health care.
We're not kidding. Transform's opening evening will inform, entertain and, above all, inspire you to new heights. You don't want to miss this!

Change Agents (Catalysts)
True change can only occur when we delve into the causes and effects impacting health care. Day two of Transform will begin with the identification of relationships and behaviors within health care, creating a greater understanding of people, families and communities that will form a solid foundation for change.
Innovation in health care doesn't always look like what we expect. Hear from the unexpected change agents we are surrounded by every day.
Elephant in the Room
The potential for progress is limited if we don't address critical topics that aren't typically discussed. In past years, this renowned session at Transform has dealt with issues such as suicide and violence. Transform 2014 will introduce another topic impacting health that our society seems to be tiptoeing around and pretending it isn't the larger problem that it is.
The relationships between people, providers and payers are changing, creating new models for the future. Join us as we collectively reveal the new opportunities evolving through honest dialog.
