About

Purpose Events brings together the right people, at the right time, to the right place to accelerate change and help business leaders make an impact. We know that face to face meetings move businesses forward faster. We tired long ago of events filled with PowerPoints and pitches; we love creating shared experiences that push boundaries, disrupt the status quo, and inspire business leaders to take meaningful action. We use a combination of research, storytelling, matchmaking, and impeccable planning to deliver extraordinary events that keep attendees, speakers, and sponsors coming back for meetings that matter.

HealthIMPACT is not just another Health IT event.  It is an idea exchange among a community of leaders.  It is where C-Suite healthcare technology executives come together for dynamic debate that culminates in solutions you can implement and inspiration that doesn’t end when you walk out of the conference room.  In just four years it has become the Nation’s leading C-Suite Health IT Forum where participants challenge the status quo and innovate ahead of the rest.

Custom Events, Focus Groups, User Group Meetings, and CXO Dinners that bring together exactly who you want to meet and tell the story you want to tell.  The HealthIMPACT team will work with you to design a custom experience for your clients and targets in an ideal environment for learning and networking.
