I recently learned about an exciting new conference called What’s the Fix? that’s been created by the good people at HEALTHSPARQ. I’ve never seen a conference that’s so focused on the patient voice. Plus, if you know Burt Rosen and his team, you know that they really care about helping to fix many of the issues that make healthcare suck.

This is a first year event, but I think the concept is really great and they have some great speakers lined up for it. Worth noting is that all of them but one are women (as of the writing of this post). More important is that each one has their own patient experience and healthcare story to share.

While the conference is happening June 14th in Portland, the main audience is going to be the online video streaming audience which is being made available to everyone for free. All you have to do is register for the event. In fact, the entire conference is free which is great since we all know that most patients can’t afford to pay to attend a conference. Along with the live stream, I’m sure there will be a lot of back channel conversation on the #WTFix conference hashtag. I should also note that the play on WTF with the name of the conference is well done.

The people organizing the What’s the Fix? conference put together this video about the reasons why they’re looking forward to the event:

I also love these little vignettes from the speakers:
