The Innovative Technology Exchange offers up to 100 selected suppliers the unique opportunity to connect with hospital decision makers and discuss and demonstrate how their technology improves clinical outcomes, enhances safety or drives incremental improvements to the health care business model.

“The Innovative Technology Exchange is a hands-on event which provides suppliers and users the opportunity to interact with vendors who are bringing innovative solutions to the health care industry. The direct interaction gives attendees a deeper understanding of the new technology which enables them to confidently discuss it with physicians and other colleagues,” said Debbie Archer, procurement director at Vizient.
