2018 HCEG Top Ten Infographic

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 eight 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.

Nine Reasons to Attend the 2018 HCEG Annual Forum

C-Suite Peers 

The HCEG Annual Forum offers an exclusive opportunity to get to know better, learn from, share with and network with a select number of invited healthcare leaders. Forum attendees are healthcare executives serving healthcare’s supply side: technology and innovation leaders, health systems, health plans, and provider organizations.

What’s the Focus?

“Guiding Healthcare Executives through Innovation, Change and Growth” is the theme of this year’s Annual Forum. Given uncertainty surrounding healthcare reform, escalating costs and the importance of digital transformation as a means of survival, it’s important for healthcare executives to zero in on the key strategies and ‘de-risking’ approaches most likely to provide value over the next 8-16 months.

Topics and Presentations

The theme, topics and presentations for the Annual Forum are developed by HCEG’s leadership and members based on the challenges and issues their organizations are currently facing. A mix of keynotes, industry thought leaders on panels, and HCEG member in discussions of best practices, case studies and other innovations will be shared along with select topics from the HCEG Top 10 highlighted and discussed in detail.

Expressive Environment

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.

Networking Opportunities

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.

ROI

Membership includes participation in the HCEG Annual Forum, HCEG Webinar Series and seasonal HCEG Executive Leadership Forums. The relaxed yet facilitated atmosphere allows learning and comparing notes with your peers. You’ll obtain information, test ideas and forge relationships beyond what’s possible at other healthcare conferences and events.

Worth Your Time?

The forum is intended to address key opportunities and challenges of today’s rapidly changing environment. You’ll be able to see if your company is ahead or behind the bell curve… and where best to find solutions specific to your market and focus. And the contacts you make at the Annual Forum will continue to provide on-going value long after the event is over.

Sponsors

HCEG’s Sponsor Partners are carefully selected based on their ability and willingness to share ideas and solutions with forum attendees on a collaborative basis. Only ten sponsors are allowed each year and aggressive selling is not allowed at the Annual Forum or any other leadership events and learning opportunities throughout the year.

Opportunity to Get Involved

The 2017 HCEG Annual Forum offers healthcare leaders the venue, thought leadership, peer interaction and networking collaboration to improve how your healthcare organization performs during these uncertain times.  HCEG has four functioning committees where you can have an impact on the educational calendar, health care innovation, member selection and all programs throughout the year and be actively involved with other innovative leaders across the country.

“The Annual Forum is a ‘can’t miss’ event for those seeking an in-depth understanding of where the industry is headed; The thought leadership, networking, and content is unparalleled.”
