I learn more at this event than I do the rest of the year...
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 26, 2012
On Thursday and Friday April 12th and 13th, the Healthcare Consumerism Radio show on Atlanta Business RadioX™ played an integral role in the IHC Forum East Conference held at the Cobb Galleria.
The live broadcast took place throughout the course of the two-day event put on by The Institute for Healthcare Consumerism, which was founded by Doug Field and Ron Bachman. The comprehensive interviews featured event attendees, speakers, sponsors, employers and solution providers who each spoke about their involvement in the healthcare industry and why healthcare consumerism is so critical.
Interviewee Jeff Brunsberg from Evolution 1 had this to say; “I think we have to do a better job of engaging with consumers directly and a better job of providing tools for them to engage with their health care." Ernie Harris from Ceridian added, “We started attending IHC two years ago, and I find it to be the single most valuable time I spend each year. It is a very highly concentrated collection of people from all facets of the business. I learn more at this event than I do the rest of the year and I think it is a great forum to advance the concept of Consumerism.”
