G2X TAKE: The PSC VISION conference has become one of the key events that senior executives charged with growth depend upon as they plan to meet both near term and long term opportunity. The event includes a broad focus, but Federal Health IT Executives will benefit from a health specific track that delivers a forecast and insight from hundreds of government executives, congressional staff and subject matter experts and analysts who take part in non-attribution interviews. For the growth minded executive, this is one you can’t afford to miss.
