32 Years at the Forefront of Healthcare Innovation and Technology
The HealthCare Executive Group 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.

The 2021 HCEG Top 10+

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.
