Taking place from 9 – 11 December 2019, a host of senior healthcare decision-makers and business leaders from across North America will gather at the wonderful The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island in Florida for our NG Healthcare Summit, to discuss the most pressing challenges – and opportunities – in the fast-moving health provision sector.

The summit will look at a number of key themes, including: customer experience – payer/provider collaboration and consumer loyalty; wearables and patient generated data – how to leverage patient data from remote monitoring and wearables to better manage chronic disease and at risk individuals; and data analytics – gaining insights and developing an action plan based on a unified patient data set.

From case studies that lift the lid on operations inside best-in-class organisations, to workshops and collaborative sessions that focus on real challenges and future technology innovations, to one-to-one meetings with industry peers offering practical advice tailored to your specific needs, the summit provides you with everything you need to implement your key projects more effectively.

Our Approach

Every GDS Summit has one stated aim: to help attending executives implement their key projects more effectively. We do this by developing an in-depth understanding of those executives' project needs, the business outcomes they want to achieve, and the challenges they face in terms of hitting those goals.

Who Attends

Our summits are designed for executives looking to take their business to the next level – from market-leading brands to disruptive new entrants. As such, we’ve worked with some of the world’s best-loved and most forward-thinking businesses.

6 Challenges in Healthcare

Our summit is focused on solving your strategic challenges
  • To use data and predictive analytics to iterate and drive a program of continuous improvement. To understand the technology and service offerings that enable this.
  • To drive payer and provider collaboration for better patient outcomes at better costs.
  • To link quality initiatives to strategic goals.
  • An aging population less comfortable and confident with tech, a booming millennial population that expects it. How do we best serve today and compete tomorrow?
  • Privacy, security and compliance with a complex, ever-changing and often contradictory regulatory landscape.
  • To maximize new communication and education channels: how to make the patient a better healthcare consumer.
