In days of yore, those requiring medical advice, treatment, and drugs were called patients. Today, increasingly people who visit the doctor, hospital, pharmacy, or a broad range of other medical services are called consumers.
During our Group Discussion, we’ll hear your ideas about what differentiates a “patient” from a “consumer,” and if – and how – you’re changing the way you market, treat, and interact with your healthcare consumers directly, or indirectly – if you’re providing talent, technologies or systems, to them behind the scenes.

ABL can really be life changing, thank you for making it possible. I can’t believe how much I learn from all of you. Mimi should hand out diplomas!
The draw for me is the ability to connect with people who are grappling with the challenges that we face in healthcare and an opportunity to bring your problems to a knowledgeable group of people and get good advice and counsel.
I’ve been a Member of ABL for over a decade. It’s a terrific organization for healthcare leaders who want to accelerate the process of creating valuable organizations.
I learned so much in my first experience with ABL! What Talent!
ABL allows me to get out from the day-to-day tasks, responsibilities and issues to focus on the BIG picture.
ABL is a wealth of information, knowledge, and camaraderie. You really get to trust the other Members, and you become more than business associates that meet once a month – you become friends.
ABL is an environment that always provides great (and current) information and makes me think. A welcoming group of very smart, committed and terrific people.
I think the Round Tables are outstanding! I find it very valuable to be part of a discussions with thought leaders in healthcare. The Round Tables are always very educational and have excellent topics.
