34 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 industry professionals from health systems, payers, provider organizations, and health technology vendors who’ve come together to navigate the strategic and tactical issues facing the healthcare industry today.  HCEG was founded in 1988 by healthcare executives looking for a forum to share ideas, innovations, and collective strategies.

Each year, HCEG membership identifies the HCEG Top 10, a list of opportunities, challenges, and issues facing executives in healthcare. The HCEG Top 10 serves as the foundation for HCEG educational events. content programming initiatives throughout the year, and as the basis for the Industry Pulse: a national research project.

The 2022 HCEG Top 10

The HCEG Top 10 has been a pillar of the Healthcare Executive Group for over 14 years, providing extensive insight into primary opportunities, challenges, and issues currently facing healthcare executives in the United States.

In late December of 2021, members of the HCEG Network were presented with a list of focus areas compiled from input provided by HCEG members, Focus Area Roundtables held throughout 2021, previous HCEG Top 10 lists, and a detailed review of 2022 predictions and trends from industry professionals. These senior healthcare leaders then selected and ranked ten items representing priorities for 2022. This multi-step, month-long process resulted in the HCEG Top 10 priorities for 2022

Focus areas of the HCEG Top 10 are used to drive continuous and evolving dialog with the HCEG Network, sponsor partners, and the industry at large. It also helps to focus industry-wide analysis and HCEG’s educational programming throughout the year and provides the framework for an annual research survey: The Industry Pulse.

Results & Findings – Released June 15, 2022

The Industry Pulse research focuses on payer and risk-bearing health system organizations but includes the perspectives of other industry stakeholders such as care providers, industry thought leaders, and vendors. The Industry Pulse research is based on the HCEG Top 10 list, compiled with input of HCEG Network members, and is designed to provide annual insight into opportunities, challenges, and trends in the healthcare market.

The research draws from healthcare leaders in the HCEG Network, partner organizations, and customers of HCEG’s sponsors. While open to all healthcare professionals, the Industry Pulse research is targeted at the vice-president and C-Suite levels of these organizations. The 2022 Industry Pulse continues a high concentration of senior professionals with 61% of respondents indicating a VP or higher – C-Suite – level.
