Strap Your Boots On.
We’re heading to Texas.
HEALTHCON — that magical time of the year where we all come together and bond — learning from each other, growing our professional networks and having oodles of fun in the process.
HEALTHCON2021 will be a hybrid event that you can join in-person or virtually. Four days of fun, comradery, and enlightening sessions to help you get up to speed on industry changes and advance your career.
The tidal wave of new developments brought on by COVID-19, compounded by significant changes in E/M Guidelines, expansions in Telehealth and Telemedicine and more — all make HEALTHCON2021 possibly the most important conference we’ve had to date.
Join us for an outstanding array of speakers, industry-relevant sessions and countless opportunities to chat with exhibitors and colleagues, in person or virtually. Join from the comfort of home in your PJs or in person — just don’t forget your boots!

By attending HEALTHCON 2021 in Grapevine, TX, you agree to abide by and engage in certain health-and-safety-beneficial conduct while attending the event. This includes, but is not limited to, submitting to daily temperature checks, wearing a mask at all times in public areas, engaging in appropriate physical distancing and not attending the event if you are ill or have been recently exposed to COVID-19.
If this is your first big gathering since the onset of the Coronavirus, the first hour will probably be exciting but also, a bit awkward. You may also feel a little distant from fellow attendees. You may want to give a colleague you haven’t seen in years a big hug or sit closer together during the sessions. These are instincts we all have, but you will be encouraged to refrain from any close contact throughout the conference.
We have many great locations booked for the future! Check out all of our upcoming conference dates.
