HCEG’s 2019 Annual Forum

The HCEG Annual Forum provides the setting and platform for senior level executives from across the healthcare spectrum to come together for 2-3 days each year to discuss the continuous innovation, evolution and transformation of the industry.  Attendees are granted direct access to over 100 peers, thought-leaders and solutions providers from around the country; facing similar obstacles and providing opportunities, while engaging in real, relevant and productive dialog.

The setting and structure of the HCEG Annual Forum encourages and supports candid and confidential exchange between forum participants. Press and media are not allowed to attend and ensures that thoughts and opinions expressed are not taken out of context or show up in print.

Formal and informal networking opportunities are woven into the two+ day event across various relaxed settings. You’ll get to know your peers without being lost in a crowd.  And HCEG sponsors participate as thought leaders, checking their specific business interests outside the door.

The HealthCare Executive Group

30 Years at the Forefront of Healthcare Innovation and Technology
The HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG) is a national network of select healthcare executives, thought leaders and experts of various disciplines who’ve come together to navigate the tactical and strategic issues facing the healthcare industry today.  HCEG was founded in 1988 by healthcare executives looking for a forum that offered an open exchange of ideas, opportunities for collaboration and transformational dialogue. Each year, HCEG membership identifies the HCEG Top 10 opportunities, challenges and issues facing executives in healthcare. The HCEG Top 10 serve as the foundation for HCEG educational and programming initiatives throughout the year.

Industry Thought Leaders, Experts and Innovators Navigating Tactical and Strategic Issues
HCEG promotes healthcare innovation, technology, professional growth, thought leadership and the development of life-long relationships by providing a platform for members to interact in national, regional and virtual events – all supported by the knowledge and expertise of its members, select sponsors and parallel organizations. HCEG members enjoy a wide range of benefits including virtual and in-person educational opportunities via webinars, virtual panels, our Executive Leadership Roundtables and the HCEG Annual Forum.  HCEG also produces original content and curates a wide range of timely insight and valuable information from a wide range of sources.

The HCEG Top Ten

The HCEG Top Ten has been a pillar of the Healthcare Executive Group for over 10 years, providing extensive insight into primary opportunities, challenges and issues currently facing healthcare executives in the United States.

Based on HCEG member input gathered during the month’s leading up to HCEG’s Annual Forum, and ranked during several iterations of voting during the Annual Forum, the HCEG Top Ten encourages continuous and evolving dialog on the main issues and concerns facing member organizations. It also serves as the keystone for industry wide analysis and HCEG’s educational programming throughout the following year. The HCEG Top Ten also provides the framework for an annual research survey: The Industry Pulse.

Developed in partnership with Change Healthcare over the past seven years, the Industry Pulse research survey is used to gather additional, more detailed information on the opportunities, priorities and challenges faced by health plans and health systems across the country.

The Industry Pulse survey focuses on payer organizations, but includes the perspectives of other industry stakeholders such as provider organizations and vendors. The survey is developed in partnership with the HealthCare Executive Group and is based on the HCEG Top Ten list compiled by HCEG members during their Annual Forum.

The research draws from more than 2,000 healthcare leaders, 52% VP and above, including Change Healthcare customers, HCEG members, and Health Plan Alliance members. The researchers targeted the leaders of these organizations, 27% of whom are at the president or C-suite level. The survey is designed to annually provide healthcare stakeholders with timely insight on opportunities, challenges, and trends in the healthcare market.
