KLAS Events

Ever feel that you could solve the world’s problems if you could only get the right people in the same room at the same time? So do we. By bringing the best and brightest in healthcare together under the same roof, KLAS hopes to facilitate conversation that will create clarity out of complexity and ultimately improve the world’s healthcare.

About

Every year, KLAS hosts a Keystone event. Each one highlights a high-energy section of the Healthcare IT market that needs collaborative discussion and clarity before healthcare minds can solve problems and move the industry forward.

This event brings together executive leadership from across healthcare to decide on outcomes, build road maps for success, and agree on frameworks for operation within a given market segment. Keystone events also guide KLAS’ research efforts for years to come.
