UVM Health Network Integration Conference

Defy Convention: 
challenge what's accepted and do the unexpected

November 2-3, 2018
Stowe Mountain Lodge
7412 Mountain Road, Stowe, Vermont

"Work and learn alongside peers to identify new ways of taking control of a fractious and disruptive healthcare system
to make it work for our patients and you.


So much happening in health care is out of our control. Rigid rules and outdated conventions coupled with increasing demands and new expectations have put providers, staff and hospitals in a pressure cooker. But what if - instead of seeing this as an unwinnable battle - you could peer over the horizon and glimpse a new way of working? What if you had the power to inspire and influence change that could release the pressure and create solutions that help patients, quiet the noise, and make sense of the chaos?

Join us in November to hear from national thought leaders who have defied convention in their own ways to spark change. We hope they open your mind to new and diverse paths toward better health care that strongly supports both patients and providers.

In this day-and-a-half event, you'll meet and connect with other people facing similar situations from different perspectives. You'll work with colleagues to identify and prototype solutions that you can bring to work on Monday morning, and discover why having a diverse network works in your favor.

Challenge the status quo. Put on your peacock suit.

We'll see you in Stowe.



In 2017, the University of Vermont Medical Group brought together more than 200 people to think about integration differently. We believe in the power of delivering high quality healthcare that simplifies the delivery of our services and works for our patients and ourselves. The Integration Summit provides an open forum for people to learn about and discuss the unique challenges of bringing together healthcare organizations in a meaningful way.
