We are at a critical moment. The transition to value based payment, political and policy uncertainty, affordability, and access is challenging patients, providers, payers, communities, and systems.
Often, we are missing the point. Transform 2017 will focus on closing the gap between people and health. The conference emphasizes the human perspective as a compass to understand and navigate pivotal issues and boldly create a sustainable future for health care.
Transform was a rare health care conference that brought together people from many different parts of healthcare to take new and novel views of not where we have been, but where we should be going.Geoffrey Clapp
Transform is the kind of conference that gives you the confidence to go back to your desk and push a little harder to be the change agent that we all know we need.Kim Erwin

The thing I love about Transform is the courage, not of any one person or idea, but of the way we collectively admit that solving problems in healthcare takes truth telling, persistence, justice and creativity. We are all in this together.Barbara Barry
“Transform was a powerful and inspirational experience to meet other creative, amazing people willing to take risks and follow their passion to create a more inclusive, participatory, and responsive culture of health.”Andres Marquez-Lara
