From Oct. 7-9, thousands of health care advocates gathered in downtown Kansas City, Missouri for Cerner Health Conference (CHC), an opportunity to learn, network, and explore the latest innovations in health care and technology. Throughout the conference, CHC attendees engaged in inspiring keynotes, specialty events focused on specific industry challenges and more than 200 education sessions. The excitement of the conference carried over to social media, where attendees shared their experiences in real-time. Here are social posts that showcase some of CHC19’s best moments:
Pre-CHC forums bring together Cerner clients, partners and associates
Cerner Physician Community Forum, Revenue Management Forum, the code Learning Lab and the Truman Group explored health care disruption and innovation while placing an emphasis on continued collaboration.
After 2 awesome opening keynotes, we’re now having our Solutions Gallery reception. Never ceases to amaze me how incredible it is seeing @Cerner bring the convention center to life with the latest in HCIT innovation. Now time to connect with new and familiar faces! #CHC19
We focus so much on results from #QualityImprovement but what if ongoing quality improvement IS THE RESULT we are looking for? Question inspired by Chris Barron from Fort Healthcare at #CHC19. #CultureOfQuality
“Our theme this year is ‘Building on a Decade of Excellence.’ In many respects, Truman Group is both a celebration of how far we have come, and a glimpse at where we are headed.”
