I think that's the biggest benefit of coming… Just hanging out with people who do the same work you do, and bouncing ideas back and forth. We've solved a lot of problems that way.

Another part of the GHX Summit that I love is the opportunity to go into the Learning Lab, and talk to the developers so that we can see what's coming… They're always looking to make it better and I think that's another opportunity we have that is a really great opportunity here.

I have really enjoyed getting to know other colleagues at the Summit. Whether they are a supplier or provider, it's very interesting to hear other people's perspectives and to realize that, a lot of times, we all have the same issues and figuring out together what works best.
