PBIRG and PMRG will join in 2018 to create a community where you belong, where you contribute, where you succeed. A community that is global, that focuses on improving the lives of patients, that advocates for you and your professional development. As your new healthcare business analytics and insights association, we are eager to explore of the future of our industry and its 7 Billion Voices.

The patient experience is nothing short of the human experience. From every corner of the globe – to every condition – there is a patient’s voice. They are the many and they are empowered (or will be). Yet so much remains undiscovered about how and where patients are influencing our global health ecosystem. As researchers and marketers, we tend to focus on the few but miss out on hearing from those who are left behind.

How would our world change if we improved healthcare by empowering patients? Who will be the beneficiaries of these advances and how will this progress toward wellness and health equality shape care? How do we, as researchers, prepare for this future?

The 2018 Summit: 7 Billion Voices will explore these issues through the lens of the patient. Our speakers will provide thought-provoking stories and experiences so we can look beyond the data to understand how we can make a real impact with patients. As an attendee, you will walk away with tools and strategies to take back to the office and put to work immediately following The Summit. Our speakers and tracks will explore: Rare Diseases, Addiction and Mental Illness; Health Literacy & Equality; The Health Future of Millennials; Optimizing Patient Experience; Patient Centric Models; HEOR / Patient Outcomes; Digitalization of Health; Social Media Impact …and more.

Our community is dedicated to improving the lives of patients by providing healthcare business advocacy, insight analytics and professional development to its members. At The 2018 Summit, attendees will discuss systemic, strategic issues affecting our industry.

Attendees will participate in peer-reviewed, fully-vetted sessions including “big picture” keynotes, focused and collaborative 35-minute sessions and client-led round table discussions. Where appropriate, cross-sector examples will be used to illuminate ways in which other industries have met challenges similar to those confronting the healthcare industry. Our agenda (posted January 17) will include tracks appropriate for experienced professionals, medical device and diagnostics, young professionals and students.
