As we noted in our March issue, HOC will be attending and reporting on the 4th Annual World Health Care Congress held on 22–24 April in Washington, DC, USA.
The Congress is billed as “the must-attend event for healthcare, government and corporate leaders to formulate solutions to the escalating challenges of healthcare cost, quality, and delivery.”
