Searching for Answers in the Desert: HCIC 2018

Posted November 5, 2018

Deserts are often places where people go to be alone – to meditate, embark on a vision quest or walkabout – to search for answers to life’s toughest questions. Rarely are they places where people get together to connect and share ideas (unless you’re attending Burning Man, or in this case, the 22nd Annual Greystone.net Healthcare Internet Conference (HCIC)).

HCIC 2018 kicks off today in Scottsdale, Arizona at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa and will run through Wednesday. A gleaming oasis in the stark landscape of Scottsdale, the Westin should prove to be the perfect backdrop for learning, collaborating and advancing the healthcare digital marketing field.

#HCIC18 promises over 165 speakers across eight tracks created to further education and foster professional development. Our own Ty Tillery, MBA, Lead Client Strategist for Tea Leaves Health will speak Tuesday morning at 11:30 a.m. in Rainmakers B/C, Lower Level, with Henry Randall, MD, Executive Director of SSM/SLUH Transplant Center and Chantal Reyna, MD, Assistant Professor from University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center.  Their topic, “The Doctor Will Hear You Now: Innovative Solutions to Increase Patient Engagement,” will cover successful physician growth strategies that can be achieved by any healthcare organization via innovative technological and human solutions.

Immediately following that session, Lori Brenner, VP of Physicianology for Tea Leaves Health, will facilitate a roundtable luncheon discussion on, “Physician Engagement and Leakage” at table 14 on Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. in the Herberger Ballroom (Lower Level).

Not only will HCIC quench your thirst for learning (even in the driest climate) – it will also fuel the need for personal connections. The exhibit hall this year will be bursting with the buzz of over 90 exhibitors and sponsors offering a plethora of services to support you and your organizations. Tea Leaves Health is sponsoring the CRM & Analytics track, and our experts will be in booth 16 helping attendees find the answers to their most difficult business questions, such as:

“Why are our service lines unsuccessful?”

“Why isn’t revenue meeting projections?”

“Why are our physician practices not driving volume?”

“Why are our strategies ineffective?”

We’ll also be giving away a $200 gift card to Southwest Airlines, so if HCIC attendees do get lost in the desert, one lucky individual will be able to find their way out. So, be sure to come visit us in booth 16. If you can’t be at HCIC, follow the hashtag #HCIC18 or follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter at @TeaLeavesHealth. Let the conference commence!
