The Business of Healthcare

July 26 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


ACHE of North Texas is pleased to bring back this special networking and educational event! The program will showcase companies from various healthcare-oriented businesses which support the business of healthcare outside of the four walls of a hospital or health system. This event will expose attendees to the vast market outside of a hospital, but very relevant within the healthcare industry such as: Marketing, Consulting, Support Services, Patient Engagement, Practice Management, Architecture, Law, Provider Staffing, etc.

The event space will have tables set up for attendees, and each table will have a panelist present. The table presenters will be discussing how their professions touch healthcare, trends and innovations in their fields, and about their personal leadership journey. After each iteration, the panelists/presenters will switch tables and speak to a new attendee group. The event will also include an open networking session at the end, enabling attendees to further visit with the presenters and network with other ACHENTX Members.

This is not a job fair, rather an opportunity to broaden perspectives and understand how professional businesses support our local healthcare ecosystem.

Light hors d’oeuvres will be available.
