Feed body, mind, and spirit at Crowe Healthcare Summit

Numerous intensive in-person and virtual workshops, breakout sessions, roundtable discussions, and keynote addresses over a week – that’s the in-depth educational experience awaiting attendees of the 2023 Crowe Healthcare Summit.

But our premier annual healthcare finance event isn’t just about the numbers. Healthcare Summit also feeds the body, mind, and spirit like no other healthcare finance conference in the industry.

Feeding the body

Healthcare finally is recognizing the inextricable connection between physical health and mental health. It’s all just health, and that’s why more providers are integrating behavioral health services into their primary care services.

It’s no different at this year’s Healthcare Summit. If accounting, finance, compliance, internal audit, net revenue, reimbursement, risk, and revenue cycle represent mental health, then the following activities during the event are the physical health.

  • Tuesday, Sept. 19th, 2:15-3:15 p.m., is a Virtual Guided Meditation, where Dr. Dee Moonesinghe will lead our virtual audience through an introduction to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and then a brief guided meditation session.
  • Tuesday, Sept. 19, 4-5 p.m., is Wellness Focus Hour, featuring chair yoga, chair massages, and healthy snacks.
  • Wednesday, Sept. 20, 6:30-7:30 a.m., is Movement Hour, featuring group yoga directed by a professional yoga instructor.
  • During all open Healthcare Summit event hours on-site is the Zen Zone, sponsored by First Solutions Limited and Hall Render, featuring a quiet area for chair massages and a chance to relax between Healthcare Summit sessions.

These physical health activities are designed to help Healthcare Summit attendees with their mental health and give them a more holistic conference experience.

Feeding the mind

Careers in healthcare accounting finance, compliance, internal audit, net revenue, reimbursement, risk, and revenue cycle aren’t for the faint of heart. They are demanding, exacting, and stressful professions. But they also are incredibly rewarding – so much so that professionals working in these areas have a strong desire to give back to underserved communities and populations.

The philanthropic activities at this year’s Healthcare Summit reflect that desire and that culture and feed the minds of attendees: 

  • Helping children in need. Crowe is working with the Tennessee Alliance for Kids to fill 60 backpacks, called “TAK PAKs,” with essential and comfort items for children entering foster care. Healthcare Summit attendees will have the opportunity to help fill the TAK PAKs during during the Wildhorse Saloon networking event on Sept. 18.
  • Supporting women in healthcare leadership. Healthcare Women Connexxt is a one-year-old Crowe program that supports women in healthcare leadership roles through networking, mentoring, and educational opportunities. Healthcare Women Connexxt will have a booth at the Healthcare Summit Innovation Hub and host an invitation-only luncheon on Tuesday, Sept. 19, noon-1 p.m., with Pinksocks Life, a charitable organization that promotes human connection around the world.
  • Advancing kindness, empathy, connection, and love. That’s the global mission of Pinksocks Life, and Healthcare Women Connexxt will make a donation at Healthcare Summit to support the organization’s school program. Pinksocks Life will direct the donation specifically to Holcomb Elementary School in Oregon City, Oregon. Each student there will receive a pair of the organization’s iconic pinksocks. Colleen Hall, Crowe managing principal and founder of Healthcare Women Connexxt, and Nick Adkins, co-founder of Pinksocks Life, will speak at the luncheon and be at the booth in the Innovation Hub to meet and speak with attendees.

Giving back feeds the mind, and this year’s Healthcare Summit provides multiple opportunities for attendees to do just that with their peers from across the country.

Feeding the spirit

There’s spirit. And then there’s spirits. Both will be in abundance at the networking events at this year’s Healthcare Summit for on-site attendees in Nashville, Tennessee. Here’s what’s on tap. 

  • Sunday, Sept. 17, 5:30-7:30 p.m., is the welcome reception in the Healthcare Summit registration area at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel. Grab your badge, a drink, and a quick bite to eat.
  • Monday, Sept. 18, 6-9 p.m., is line dancing at the Wildhorse Saloon, led by the Mustang Dancers. In between dances and games, attendees can enjoy the beverage of their choice and food from a buffet of traditional Southern-style delicacies. 
  • Tuesday, Sept. 19, 4:30-9 p.m., is a night at the Grand Ole Opry. For attendees who are fans of country music and country humor, this is a must-see event. Attendees also can enjoy a traditional Southwestern-style dinner before the show.
  • Tuesday, Sept. 19, 5:30-9 p.m., is a more relaxing alternative to the Grand Ole Opry. Attendees can take in the sights and enjoy live music and traditional Southwestern-style fare at the Lookout at Ole Red, which sits above the busy honky-tonks and bars on Broadway in downtown Nashville. It’s a must-do for people watching.
  • Wednesday, Sept. 20, 5:30-7:30 p.m., is the farewell reception, also in the Healthcare Summit registration area. Attendees can see each other off – but not before sharing their Healthcare Summit takeaways and experiences.
