HealthAchieve was recognized for its progressive annual tradeshow which hosts close to 300 exhibitors from across the globe.
"Making the event a one-of-a-kind experience for our attendees while ensuring that it's a successful show for exhibitors is our top priority," said Warren DiClemente, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President, Educational Services, OHA.

Building on the resounding success of the IHP, HealthAchieve 2016 will introduce a much larger, dedicated technology space that will feature an iHome and Wearable Technology Pavilion™.
