We’ve got a lot of great things happening at Relias that we’re excited to share, and we’re committed to tackling the tough issues facing healthcare professionals today issues that benefit from the kinds of collaboration and insights that Impact Nation has become known for with our customers.”  

This year marks the first time Relias has expanded Impact Nation into a thought leadership mini-series including two additional, half-day virtual sessions. These separate events cover two of the most pressing issues facing healthcare organizations today.  

Impact: Retention was held August 17, 2023, and was especially curated for senior leaders, administrators, and key staff members. The complimentary event concentrated on retention strategies to help address some of the most common retention issues.
