10 Reasons to Attend RL Palooza This Year

April 17, 2017 Mike Etzinger

RL’s annual user group conference is fast approaching! With less than 2 months to go, hundreds of RL users have already registered for what promises to be an exciting and educational event.  
 
If you haven’t attended RL Palooza in the past, now is the time to do so! Packed with informative sessions, ample networking opportunities, and good ol’ fashioned fun, RL Palooza is your chance to connect with fellow RL users and to learn new ways to get the most of your software. 
 
In case you’re still not convinced, here are the top 10 reasons why we believe you should join us in Toronto from June 6th-9th. 

10 – It’s our 20th birthday  

RL Palooza has never been about RL. It’s always been about showing our appreciation and providing learning opportunities to our clients. But the fact that 2017 represents our 20th year in business is as good of a reason as any to get together and celebrate with friends! 

9 – Amazing keynotes 

Chris Hadfield at RL PaloozaWhether it’s Chris Hadfield, Patch Adams, or somewhere in between, RL Palooza strives to have keynote speakers that inspire, educate and are, of course, entertaining. We haven’t shared who will be this year’s keynote, so stay tuned to our email communications for future updates.  

8 – Networking opportunities with your peers 

We are proud to have some of North America’s (and the world’s) finest healthcare organizations as RL clients. This is your opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share your passion for making healthcare safer, and who have also partnered with us to achieve this goal!   

7 – Networking with RL staff

We like to think that we’re a fun bunch, but beyond that, RL Palooza is a great opportunity to have in-depth discussions with RL experts from across the organization. Whether you have a question about how to use the software, or looking for new and innovative ways to do things, RL Palooza lets you connect face-to-face with the folks that live and breathe our software.  

6 – An amazing city 

Toronto is where RL calls home, and RL Palooza 2017 allows us to share our civic pride and to welcome you as our guests. Toronto is Canada’s largest city, home to the Raptors, Maple Leafs and Blue Jays, and was recently named the most multicultural city in the world. At RL Palooza, we do our best to show you our beautiful city. Not only as a conference attendee, but as a tourist as well.  

5 – Truly memorable social events

What’s a conference without a little fun? After a long day of learning and networking, nothing ends off a day better than good food and great friends. In the past, we’ve shut down the streets of New Orleans, held a reception at an active marine base, and celebrated inside the New Orleans Superdome. This year, we have some fun ideas up our sleeves that we hope you can be a part of (we’re just not going to tell you what they are quite yet!). 

4 – Client best practice sessions 

RL Palooza is all about our clients and showcasing the great work they do. This year, we have over 60 client sessions representing healthcare organizations of all sizes covering topics on risk management, quality improvement, patient experience, and much more. But don’t take our word for it. According to our friend Dr. Jonathan Bae from Duke University Hospital, “Sitting in on the sessions and seeing what other people have been doing has been really inspiring. It gives me ideas to take back to our organization to say "look what we learned and could we implement that at Duke?” Learn more about this year’s sessions here.

3 – New product and company updates

This is the place to be to hear about updates on our products, the company, and everything in between. Each year, our CEO Sanjay provides an update on what to expect in the future, and what we have been doing over the past year. If you are looking to learn more about where we are heading, you definitely don’t want to miss this keynote.  

2 – Training, Training, Training 

RL Palooza is packed with training sessions to help you get more out of the software. Whether you’re just getting started in RL6 or consider yourself a seasoned expert, there’s something for you no matter what your level. More info on this year’s training sessions can be found here.

1 – Learn, Grow, and Improve 

We are truly inspired by the stories that our attendees share, and feel it is our duty to put on an event that not only entertains and informs, but also helps our clients to grow along with us. We take your experience very seriously, as we know just how hard it can be to take time away from your busy schedules. That’s why we pledge to do our utmost to deliver a conference that is different from others you have attended.  

As Gloria Willis of Novant Health said, “RL Palooza was an incredible experience! It was so nice to put a face with all the names we have e-mailed or talked to on the phone. Also all the amazing events that we were able to attend went well beyond any expectation and experience I have ever had at a conference! Truly top notch!” We strive to have every attendee feel this way.
