We recently attended the first-ever (and sold-out) HLTH Conference in Las Vegas this week and it was an impressive four days! The conference was touted as "the hottest, newest, largest and most important health care event creating a much-needed dialogue focused on disruptive innovation."

But is it pronounced "health" or "H-L-T-H?" As the founder, Jon Weiner, explained, it's just health without the vowels. The goal is to unburden the health care industry, so they unburdened the word by removing the superfluous letters.

Since we spend most of our conference time at events focused on employee benefits, our goal was to see what was happening in health care as a whole, and find new ideas to help our members. The general sessions were packed with great speakers and info and there were four or five tracks each day with 40-minute breakout sessions. Most were moderated panels with industry insiders, experts, and innovators.
