"Networking and sharing best practices will definitely be a highlight. Our team is excited about getting new ideas that we can implement in our hospital, enabling us to better engage patients in their own care."
Widely acknowledged by analysts and the media as the industry's leading Interactive Patient Care solution, the GetWellNetwork(R) PatientLife System(R) empowers patients and families by placing them at the center of their own care experience.
