GHX knocked it out of the park again. Another excellent conference. I appreciate your continued support to collaboratively bring providers and suppliers together. This conference continues to be the most valued conference I attend.

The Summit20 Talks were the highlight of the conference for me this year. There were a lot of informative topics covered that I was able to take back to my team at Health and Hospitals.

Very informative. Awesome people sharing good information.

I always really love the Summit20 Talks!

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.

— Lisa Maxted, Purchasing Manager, Hackensack Meridian Health

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.
