Dr. Janet Lapp to Keynote Verge Health’s 4th Annual User Summit on October 3

Charleston, SC, September 25, 2019 — Verge Health, the healthcare industry’s leading governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) company, will host national change leadership speaker, Dr. Janet Lapp, to the 4th annual VergeCon, Verge Health’s user summit, taking place October 2 – 4 in Chicago, IL.

“Change is either a force to be feared, or an opportunity to be seized. The choice is yours,” says Dr. Lapp. Over the past 25 years, Dr. Janet Lapp’s change leadership books and bold programs have created clear, actionable paths to the future for over 2,000 organizations around the world, focusing on change management, customer service/loyalty, and leadership training and development.

What would happen if everyone in your organization saw the positives in change? How much time and energy would be saved if everyone learned a common language to identify and contain resistance? How much time and money would be saved if everyone took daily action toward their goals? These questions in particular have inspired Dr. Janet Lapp and her team to conduct decades of research enacting these changes in the workplace, with amazingly positive results.

Verge Health is excited to welcome Dr. Lapp and other industry experts to VergeCon next week in downtown Chicago. Other industry leaders include Stephanie Mercado, CEO and Executive Director of the National Association for Healthcare Quality (NAHQ) and Dr. Istikram Qaderi, MD, MPS, Chief Quality and Transformation Officer at Penn Highlands Healthcare.

VergeCon is an impactful three-day event which brings together like-minded individuals with similar healthcare goals. The conference focuses on inspiring healthcare leaders to keep driving towards high reliability with new knowledge and energy through training on Verge’s Converge platform, product announcements, best practice sharing and updates from industry leaders in healthcare.

Verge Health partners with healthcare organizations on their pathway to zero harm to help align patient and employee safety, compliance, and practitioner management to reach their high reliability goals. Providing an enterprise view of risk, Verge Health helps organizations share data across all aspects of risk management allowing for robust analytics to gain actionable insights for proactive decision-making to create an environment where “zero harm” is the standard of care.
