Eden Health was on the ground in Boston, MA at this year’s HLTH conference. HLTH, the largest conference for health innovation in the country, brings together payers, providers, employers, investors, startups, policymakers, and others to solve the healthcare industry’s most pressing problems.
As the Official Hybrid Healthcare Partner for HLTH, Eden team members modeled the power of pop-up clinics by administering rapid and PCR COVID-19 tests for international and domestic attendees. Here, several members of the Eden team share their key takeaways from this year’s conference:
“Attendees really want to feel safe when attending big industry conferences and have found Eden’s pop-up services very valuable. We had many attendees visit us before traveling back internationally and others wanted tests before going back home to their families. It’s very important as we go back to participating in live events like HLTH to make all attendees feel safe and for conferences to have partners like Eden Health onsite.” – Ioni Gkliati, Director of Marketing Events
“There is a tremendous amount of energy behind changing the way care is delivered. I’m extremely excited to see all of these companies trying to make a difference in the healthcare space. We have innovation that is refreshingly patient-focused and financial backers who are ready to support that. I consistently heard about the centrality of building effective patient-provider relationships. That is our mission as a company: To create a world where every person has a relationship with a trusted healthcare provider.” – Matt McCambridge, CEO
“There’s clearly a meaningful shift in investment related to empowering providers to care for patients from behind a screen or from a phone. It was really encouraging to see the market recognize that virtual care was not just a plug for the pandemic, but rather a real tool to be used strategically in the care continuum. To do that well, that means not just solving for patient needs, but also for the needs of the providers.” – Kendal Borup, VP of Health Plan Account Management
“COVID continues to change the way providers are treating their patients. Leaders across all industries are trying to crack the healthcare nut. Eden is extremely well-positioned as a mission-driven organization with patient experience to be a trusted healthcare provider for employers nationwide. The dedication of our providers is refreshing, as so many other healthcare workers are burning out and leaving traditional medical establishments in droves.” – Heather Towery, MD, VP Clinical Strategy and Enterprise Partnerships
