“What’s the Fix?” (WTF) Patient Conference is Back in 2018

When I first heard about the What’s the Fix? (or WTF if you prefer) conference, I knew that WTFix would be the most patient-centered conference ever. In its first-year HealthSparq and their team achieved this vision of a patient-focused conference in excellent fashion. So, I was excited to hear the recent announcement of What’s the Fix? 2018.

For those not familiar with WTFix, watch this video to get a feel for what went down at the first event:

I love that this year HealthSparq has partnered up with the Design Institute for Health at Dell Medical School to host the conference. No doubt this year will be more connected, empathetic, and vulnerable than ever. Plus, if you can’t make it to Austin, WTFix will be facilitating virtual attendance at the conference. This is great for patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals that aren’t able to travel to attend the event but want to hear these amazing stories.

I’m sure many patients are wondering if they can afford to attend the event. Don’t worry about that. WTFix is Free to register! In fact, I know the organizers worked really hard to ensure their conference was Patients Included accredited. Seems appropriate for a conference that’s so focused on patients.

I really appreciate HealthSparq for bringing all of these patient stories to the forefront to remind us all of the important work we have to do. Check out the WTFix video section and the #WTFix hashtag on Twitter to get a feel for the community that’s forming. You won’t find a more passionate, caring, empathetic community than WTFix.
