One of our favorite annual events is just around the corner: Becker’s Hospital Review CEO + CFO Roundtable kicks off November 13th and runs through the 15th at the Westin Michigan Avenue in Chicago. It’s the sixth year for this must-attend gathering, with over 122 hospital CEOs, CFOs, and industry experts sharing their views on the issues, opportunities, and strategies that matter to health system executives.
We’ll be there in force, with Change Healthcare experts leading or driving several sessions, joined by representatives of our executive, sales, and account management leadership, including:
