Cleveland Clinic and HIMSS Patient Experience Summit call for proposals now open

Speakers at the event will share patient experience success and failures, with a priority on peer-to-peer experiential learning

HIMSS and the Cleveland Clinic are now accepting speaking proposals for the 10th annual Empathy & Innovation Summit, the world's largest, independent conference devoted to improving the patient experience. This year the clinic is partnering with HIMSS to explore more deeply how healthcare is extending empathy into an increasingly digital environment.

The deadline to submit a presentation proposal is 5 PM EST January 25. Priority is given to peer-to-peer, experiential learning and case studies from healthcare payer and provider organizations.

The theme of the 2019 summit, which will take place May 13-15 in Cleveland, is Looking Back, Leaping Forward. Attendees will share in patient experience successes and failures over the last decade and explore what's need to better design the clinical, physical and emotional experience for patients, families, and caregivers in the future.

Additionally, HIMSS will present two preconference symposium on May 13. One will address the consumerism of healthcare; the other will explore "smarter care" or how to maximize your existing technology more effectively to provide a better experience to underserved and high-risk populations.
