Woburn, MA – December 3, 2013 – HealthcareSource(R), the leading provider of talent management solutions for the healthcare industry, hosted the 13th annual Learning Symposium Conference in Baltimore, MD, September 15-18, 2013 and the 11th annual Talent Outcomes(TM) Conference in Boston, MA, October 28-30, 2013. More than 300 attendees came together at both conferences which featured content on healthcare talent management industry trends, product updates, peer-to-peer sessions, and networking activities for HealthcareSource clients and partners. In 2014, the conferences will combine and become Talent SymposiumSM.
Attendees enjoyed informative and entertaining presentations from industry experts Frederick Morgeson, Ph.D., HealthcareSource scientific advisor of Michigan State University; Donna Wright, MBA, Staff Development Specialist/Consultant of Creative HealthCare Management; and motivational speakers, Mary Feeley, CSP and Gen Guanci MEd, RN-BC, CCRN. Many attendees enjoyed these sessions so much that they requested the speakers return next year.
HealthcareSource clients were recognized at Talent Outcomes as part of the Talent-in-Talent(TM) Program. Talent in Talent is an annual award given to healthcare human resources professionals who demonstrate the highest level of talent, proficiency and competency in healthcare talent management.
Based on their participation and engagement on the HealthcareSource client discussion board, the following clients were selected for the 2013 Talent-in-Talent Award:

With the merger of HealthcareSource and NetLearning, which was acquired by HealthcareSource in December 2012, next year’s conferences will be combined to encompass the full HealthcareSource solution portfolio. The entire client base, including HealthcareSource Position Manager(R), Performance Manager(R), NetLearning(R), and Assessment software customers and eLearning courseware customers, will come together in Las Vegas, NV, November 2-5, 2014 for an agenda packed with healthcare talent management trends and best practices, software and courseware enhancements, complementary partner content, featured speakers, and networking events that connect the value of the complete HealthcareSource suite of talent management solutions.
“Each year both Learning Symposium and Talent Outcomes have brought together our most passionate, successful clients who are using HealthcareSource solutions for recruitment, retention, learning management and courseware, so it makes good sense to bring these audiences and the content together in to one event,” said Peter Segall, president and CEO of HealthcareSource. “By combining these two successful events in to one conference that addresses the end-to-end talent management needs of healthcare organizations, we look forward to even greater participation and engagement from our entire client base. I, for one, can’t wait to see Talent Symposium fulfill its potential to be the most valuable conference for talent management professionals in the healthcare industry.”
Registration is currently open for Talent Symposium in Las Vegas November 2-5, 2014. Visit the conference website for more details at www.talentsymposium.com [www.talentsymposium.com].
