Our strategy is to continue expanding in the post-acute care space, and we especially wanted to show our growing commitment to you, our customers.

In addition, many of you have requested access to more of Mediware’s product offerings. This conference will showcase them all! We collaborate with dozens of third party partners, and we are bringing them to one venue to create a valuable experience for you.

Connect with division managers, support staff and trainers

During our Welcome Reception and meals, you will have opportunities to visit with Mediware team members from each division.

In addition, the Activity Night will provide an opportunity to visit with team members one-on-one.
