ECHAlliance is excited to be a partner of HLTH VRTL 2020!

HLTH VRTL 2020 is the most important healthcare event of the year. The year everything changed – we are facing a global health pandemic, a cultural crisis and will have one of the most important Presidential elections of our time. Now more than ever, it’s essential for us to gather together to spark true change and discuss the impact that this past year will have on the industry going forward.

While we may not be able to meet in person this fall, you can still expect an exceptional virtual experience, bringing together leaders from across the health ecosystem to help solve some of the industry’s largest problems and to bring to life some of the most promising opportunities to improve health.
