It’s a Wrap! IMPACT 2019 Earns Praise From Altruista Customers

IMPACT 2019 in Arlington, Virginia, was a two-day whirlwind of networking, panel discussions, roundtables and presentations with one aim in mind: How can Altruista Health and GuidingCare® help customers stay competitive, stay compliant, innovate and serve their members? Keynote speaker Aneesh Chopra, the nation’s first chief technology officer, talked in dramatic terms about the positive economic effect for the nation of liberating healthcare data from its siloes. If we could open up healthcare data, Chopra said, it would free up $1 trillion in capital in the U.S. economy by 2025. He directly challenged health plans to make this happen – to resounding applause.

There was freewheeling discussion at both the invitation-only CEO Roundtable led by Ashish Kachru and the Customer Roundtable led by Munish Khaneja, Mike McKitterick, Carol Sims and Craig Wigginton. These executives actively and persistently sought the feedback of customers on how GuidingCare can be shaped to meet their needs.

In their own words

One customer put it this way: “The event demonstrated that Altruista Health is a company that cares about the product being delivered and the direction of healthcare. I appreciated that many of the executives and senior executives knew my company and where we are with our go-live ... ALL staff were willing to help, whether it was introducing me to other groups who could answer some of my specific questions or allowing me to utilize my time there to pick brains (of Altruista staff).”

Said another: “The networking with the Altruista team, other clients and the keynote speaker were excellent.”

Yet another guest lauded “the discussion and ability to meet others and discuss their business challenges.”

The information-rich environment at IMPACT 2019 supported guests in speaking their minds. Said one: “The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly, encouraging input from all attendees.”

Next year’s dates set

IMPACT 2020 dates have already been set, so Altruista customers should mark their calendars now and plan to attend the next event in Washington, DC, Tuesday, Sept. 29 and Wednesday, Sept. 30. See you there!
