This year’s event featured, among other displays, new technologies in treating diabetes and kidney disease as well digital health coaching programs to help people improve their own well-being.
“Perfecting a 21st century healthcare system that is both affordable and accessible for all Americans and that provides care of the highest quality hinges on support for healthcare innovation. We need to constantly develop new and better ways to deliver care and link patients and consumers to the healthcare system,” said HLC President Mary R. Grealy. “We’re grateful for Congressman Broun’s leadership, dedication and hard work in advancing the quality, accessibility and cost-effectiveness of American healthcare.”
