Connex International Announces Fall 2010 Healthcare Sector Meetings

Connex Healthcare has announced dates for its Fall Healthcare Sector Meetings,
which will be held in Chicago, September 19th - 21st. The Connex formula involves a highly interactive two-day
series of meetings that bring together approximately 60 C-Level hospital executives to examine solutions to some
of their most pressing needs. These focused peer groups discussions are designed to allow each institution to tap
into and leverage the collective knowledge and experiences of the group to find actionable solutions and avoid
costly mistakes. Each hospital executive will typically return to their facility with several implementable ideas and
solutions that address some of their most pressing problems and objectives saving them considerable time and
Connex's most recent Sector Meetings in January hosted 62 executives from various hospital and health systems
ranging in size from Shands Lake Shore Hospital (100 beds), to New York Presbyterian (2,242 beds).
“One of the key components of our model is partnering with the correct mix of relevant 'best of breed' solution
providers,” said Benjamin Collins, president and CEO of Connex International. "This small number of solution
providers are included in the process of needs-assessment and solution identification that our hospital clients
engage in, culminating in discussions and direct meetings with our clients’ decision-makers, who have specific
areas of need that relate to the solutions offered.”
These meetings are highly targeted and based upon mutual due diligence and documentation, thereby ensuring
legitimate interest and resulting in a win-win as both parties save a great deal of time and money.
“Over the past several months, we’ve been looking for an emergency management systems solution for the
facility,” said Kathy Joyce, Chief Nursing Officer of Pampa Regional Medical Center. “Engaging in the Connex
process helped me articulate our needs a bit better, and allowed me to find a strong strategic fit with a vendor in the
space that we expect to hire in the short term. I was also able to understand first-hand from my peers how they are
addressing issues in their facilities, which gave me unique and usable insight.”
Connex International provides hospitals and hospital systems with a unique solution to discover new ideas and
benchmark their own decisions by accessing over 700 of their most sophisticated peers. To find out more, please
