As we head into the fall iUGO Care will be on the road, showcasing our latest Remote Patient Monitoring and Chronic Care Management solutions and getting up to speed on the latest developments in the industry. We also realize that the community we’re building is every bit as important as the technology we’re creating. Conferences and hackathons are a great opportunity for us to connect with our community and catch up with new and old friends alike. These events often provide the venues where we meet new partners and potential contributors to the iUGO Care platform.
September and October are particularly busy travel months for us. Members of the iUGO team will be attending the following events:
September 26-28: ATA Edge Conference, Austin, Texas
The purpose of Edge is to help innovate, think bigger, & learn from each other. Attendees will walk away inspired with new ideas, learn what their competitive Edge is and gain insight on how to optimize it.
Edge’s new vision and goal is to change the story around virtual care and their events will reflect that. They will curate content and experiences that will be designed to shed new light on timely topics in virtual care and focus on the why.
Starting with EDGE 2018 the theme will be how to begin defining (or refining) an organizations’ growth strategy to incorporate telehealth. They’ll respond to questions like “what is the promise of innovative technology?”, “what is the pathway to success?” and “how does each piece fit together?” Through a series of short talks, interactive sessions, and fun attendees will walk away with the answers to these questions and actionable solutions to push their organization and the industry forward.
October 3-5: National ACO Association Conference in Capital Hilton, Washington, D.C.
ACOs are positioned at the intersection of value-based payments, population health, care coordination, innovation, transformation, and collaborations among Medicare, Medicaid and commercial payers.

Through the reduction of rehospitalizations and taking away the administrative burden facing care teams, they can focus on what they do best — patient care.
