If you didn’t have time to take in everything at the conference you were interested in, you still can!
As an OHCE2020 registrant, you can go to the ARVC portal to watch any or all of the OHCE2020 sessions and get the contact information of OHCE vendors as often as you want for as long as you are an active ARVC member. Just log in to your ARVC member account at arvc.org and visit “My Learning” on the left side of your member portal. Plus, you can refer back to many of the PowerPoint presentations used in the sessions by going to the “Resources” tab. When you visit My Learning, you’ll also find an open discussion board where you can comment, ask questions, leave notes and connect with your colleagues throughout the year.
ARVC has provided a how-to video to guide users to learn how to login, access and navigate the OHCE2020 Recordings page of ARVC's Learning Center: Accessing OHCE2020 On-Demand.
