Organized by the Connecticut Partners for Health, The Better Health Conference is an annual patient engagement conference tackling the biggest issues facing the healthcare industry today. The conference features informative breakout sessions, dynamic speakers, innovative vendors, and networking opportunities.


Healthcare providers are continually developing new ways to assist in delivering high quality care while reducing overall costs. A critical success factor in this transformation is the expectation that healthcare delivery models will increasingly become patient-centered. A focus on both consumer engagement and patient engagement will play a central role in improving care outcomes and reducing healthcare costs.


In an effort to assist with this transformation, the CT Partners for Health organized an annual patient engagement conference called The Better Health Conference. The multi-track event attracts some of the biggest names in the healthcare industry speaking about the latest trends.


The conference has evolved into the premier New England patient engagement event, drawing between 400 and 600 clinicians and other healthcare stakeholders including trade associations, community based-organizations, government, charitable organizations, payers and health information technology organizations. Local and national healthcare experts share their experiences, best practices and innovations in patient engagement.

“Never in all my travels have I seen such an inspiring and educational consumer-focused event. It felt like the vision of patient-centered care coming alive before my eyes.”
