A heartfelt THANK YOU! to the conference speakers, participants, innovation ignition competitors, judges, sponsors, board members, and now, evangelists activated during our TMT 1st Annual Conference in Greenwich, Connecticut. It was a true success just one day after the season’s biggest snow storm. We thank all those who came in support of sharing selfless knowledge to enlighten and enrich.
We presented attendees with invaluable bottom line content in March, and we’re asked to do it. Catch Tactics and Technologies Transforming Long-term Care again, in Washington DC, June 30, 2017. Examples of profitability, scalability, and sustainability will be presented by organizations from across the US. These initiatives can be applied to your organization to move the needle in our industry and impact quality and outcomes in patient care at your facilities. Each and every speaker is eager to share and get at the essence of initiatives with you.

You may notice a new aspect to our site—digital art—mixing photography from nature, with digital imaging. These are contemporary compositions characterized by large sections of layered colors in an abstract style. We believe digital art is a great complement to TMT’s color-bold homepage and adds yet another creative dimension to TMT’s forward reaching editorial. The Parisian born artist, Christine Zion, lives in Vancouver, Canada. The work is available for purchase direct from the artist—just click on the art and explore her website. Thank you, Christine!
