Advantage Conference 2015

From May 4 - 7, 2015, Truven Health Analytics™ hosted its annual Advantage Conference at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, Florida. The conference featured more than 50 concurrent sessions presented by Truven Health clients, sharing insights on and solutions they've developed for challenges that healthcare professionals face every day. Attendees were also able to network through interactive discussions, various activities at the conference, and the Truven Health Solutions Showcases.


In addition to Mike Boswood president and CEO of Truven Health Analytics, keynote speakers were:


  • Stuart Altman, PhD, a noted healthcare economist, professor of national health policy at Brandeis University, and renowned health policy expert. Dr. Altman discussed the limited growth in healthcare revenues and the power of antitrust enforcements - and  how these two issues are impacting the nation’s healthcare system. 

  • Kevin Davies, PhD, publisher of Chemical & Engineering News, and author of three books on genetics and society, including The $1,000 Genome: The Revolution in DNA Sequencing and the New Era of Personalized Medicine, also delivered a thought-provoking presentation on the future of genomic medicine and the issues surrounding personal genetic information.

The conference culminated with the exciting Advantage Awards 2015 banquet and ceremony, which recognized hospitals and health systems, health plans, government agencies, and employers for innovation and achievement in several categories.
