Why did you make VITAL2020 a virtual event?
The likelihood COVID-19 would remain a public health threat well into the summer, as well as the time and travel constraints our attendees face as front-line providers, led to the difficult decision to cancel the June conference planned for Chicago. But we did not waver in our commitment to member education, and a virtual event offers the best opportunity to meet that mission.
How will the virtual event differ from in-person VITAL2020?
Virtual VITAL2020 recreated all education programming planned for the in-person event and provide valuable additional benefits, including new networking tools and consecutive rather than concurrent scheduling of breakout sessions so attendees would not have to miss one presentation to view another.
How do I access conference content after the event?
Registered attendees viewed conference content live Aug. 11-13 and Aug. 18-20, 2020, and may now access all conference education sessions on demand through Aug. 10, 2021. If you missed the live broadcast of VITAL2020, you can purchase access to the archived conference site, including all plenary and breakout sessions, on this site for $295 (members) or $695 (nonmembers).
Will you still present Gage Awards?
Yes, we presented our annual Gage Awards Aug. 19, in a recorded ceremony that featured our Quality and Population Health Improvement category winners, honorable mention recipients, and noteworthy project honorees.
