The conference will feature firsthand examples from hospitals using interactive patient systems as the cornerstone of their patient engagement initiatives.

"Patient Engagement is now at the forefront of the national healthcare conversation as we are beginning to appreciate that only through engaged and empowered patients can we dramatically move the healthcare value needle," commented Dr. Edelstein. "Skylight's conference is an outstanding forum where leaders discuss key topics as to how wellness can be enhanced and adverse readmissions reduced and how care can be better personalized to improve outcomes that matter to providers, patients -- and ultimately -- populations."

Joining Dr. Edelstein as a keynote will be national regarded speaker Brooke Billingsly. Providing inspirational, moving, and practical knowledge, Brooke has spent seventeen years as the co-owner of Perception Strategies, Inc. a healthcare perception research company.
