HCIC 2019: A Good Time and a Good Education
Sneak Peek at 23rd Annual Greystone.Net Healthcare Internet Conference
// By Jane Weber Brubaker //
HCIC is a little like the gathering of the clans. “I’ve had people tell me that they feel like this is their tribe,” says Kathy Divis, president and co-founder of Greystone.Net, producers of HCIC, the annual Healthcare Internet Conference. “They love having time with people that understand what they’re going through and what they’re trying to achieve.”
What makes HCIC attractive is its laser focus on digital marketing, web development, and CRM in hospitals and health systems. That specificity makes it a must-attend conference for healthcare marketers striving to accelerate digital transformation in their organizations.
This year’s event is November 4-6 in Orlando. “We’ve got five 3-hour pre-conference sessions that will be deep dives into timely and relevant topics, three keynote speakers, and 72 concurrent breakout sessions organized into eight different tracks of content,” says Divis. In addition to educational sessions, HCIC features three awards programs honoring industry leaders: John A. Eudes Vision & Excellence Award; Healthcare Internet Hall of Fame; and the eHealthcare Leadership Awards (sponsored by this publication).
Here, Divis gives us the scoop on what’s new and different for this year’s conference, and shares her thoughts on the speaker selection process. Keep reading to learn strategies that may help you get your speaker proposal accepted next year.
