One of the most valuable elements of Hint Summit is the meaningful connections that are made once you’re there. Not only do you hear from speakers with content and ideas that inspire, motivate and energize you in your direct care journey, but you also walk away with an impactful experience that can’t be replicated. Hear from attendees who went to the Direct Primary Care Innovation conference last year, which was hosted in Denver, Colorado.


“The attendees were awesome.”
“Such a tremendous event-- sincerely appreciate all the hard work behind the scenes to make this Summit happen! Really appreciate the diversity in the crowd from physicians to benefits advisors to healthcare tech entrepreneurs and health plan innovators.” 

“The Summit offers this unique environment that not only allows people to catch up, connect and learn--it offers an energy that is uniquely palpable and hard to find anywhere else.”


No matter where you are in your direct primary care journey, Hint Summit has a lot to offer with an atmosphere of camaraderie and plenty of opportunities to learn from and share your experience with peers and pioneers alike. The Hint Summit stage will feature diverse speakers who are leading innovative approaches in the healthcare space with inspirational advice and practical takeaways that you can apply to your business. Off stage, however, is where the magic happens, with many opportunities to connect one-on-one.


Curious to know who you’ll meet at Hint Summit 2023? Registrations are still flowing in, but looking back at last year, while also taking a glimpse at who’s confirmed thus far, gives us a pretty good idea. Many Hint Summit attendees are physician entrepreneurs who own and operate direct primary care practices. Other attendees include business managers, executives and clinicians that are part of larger direct primary care organizations. Additionally, you’ll meet tech entrepreneurs and leaders who are shaping the enablement of healthcare access and transformation. We’re noticing more benefits advisors in attendance as well, which supports the trend of increasing interest in direct primary care to employers.
