Share YOUR Insight on the Challenges, Issues, & Opportunities Healthcare is Facing in 2019
For the last ten years at our Annual Forum, healthcare executives of health plans, health systems and provider organizations and industry thought leaders have discussed and identified the current challenges, opportunities, and issues facing healthcare organizations. These challenges, issues, and opportunities are embodied in the HCEG Top 10 list. In addition to driving content development, webinars, our social media presence, and in-person events that HCEG hosts throughout the coming year, the HCEG Top 10 list also serves as the basis for the Industry Pulse – a research survey co-sponsored by the HealthCare Executive Group and our sponsor partner Change Healthcare.
Insight, Experiences & Opinions On 2019 HCEG Top 10 List
The Industry Pulse survey presents and collects additional insight, experiences, and opinion on the specific items ranked on the HCEG Top 10 list. Its results can provide valuable, relevant, data-driven advice and end-to-end industry insights to help healthcare leaders navigate the complexities of the rapidly evolving healthcare system in the United States.
Influence the Future: Take The Industry Pulse Survey
HCEG and Change Healthcare invite all those working in the healthcare industry to participate in the 9th Annual Industry Pulse research survey. Taking this survey allows participants to backdrop and contrast their own perspectives against the items listed on the 2019 HCEG Top 10. The survey questions and their various response options should be enlightening in and of themselves to most respondents. In addition, those completing the survey can receive a copy of the results.
Please consider sharing your insight, experiences, and opinion as your perspective will help define the issues facing healthcare, and reveal how the industry is responding.
Learn from Other Healthcare Leaders
Everyone who completes the 9th Annual Industry Pulse Survey will receive an advance copy of the survey results. In addition, survey respondents can opt-in to receive information on future webinars, content, in-person events and other opportunities expounding on survey results and providing additional insight and value to all healthcare constituents.
The trend toward Healthcare Consumerism & Digital Health products and services is driving what healthcare providers, health systems and health plans are offering – or are planning to offer – individuals participating in the U.S. healthcare market. Whether covered by employer-subsidized insurance, government programs like Medicaid or Medicare, the individual commercial market, any other type of coverage or even not covered and paying for your healthcare with cash, healthcare consumerism and leveraging digital health products and services to decrease costs and improve outcomes are two important movements that can’t be ignored.
‘Indeed, Total Consumer Health and The Digital Healthcare Organization are both ranked in the top five items on the 2019 HCEG Top 10 list of challenges, issues, and opportunities:
#2: Total Consumer Health: Improving members’ overall medical, social, financial, and environmental well-being.
#5: The Digital Healthcare Organization: Health Savings Accounts, member and provider portals, member and patient health literacy, cost transparency, digital payment capabilities, CRM, wearables and other patient-generated data, health monitoring, and omnichannel information distribution and transaction access.
“Healthcare Consumer-centric companies accounted for 60 percent of the funding in Q3 2018, raising $1.9 billion in 111 deals compared to $1.7 billion in 138 deals in Q2 2018”
The HCEG Top 10 Challenges, Issues & Opportunities Over the Years
Over the 10 year period in which the HCEG Top 10 list has been published, ‘Healthcare Consumerism’ or a closely aligned similar category has been ranked on the HCEG Top 10 list a total of eight times. And ‘Digital Health’ has also ranked among the HCEG Top 10 challenges, issues and opportunities eight times. Only ‘Payment Reform’ and ‘Big Data & Analytics’ have been listed on the annual HCEG Top 10 list more frequently.
It should be no surprise to most people that healthcare consumerism has long been a top challenge, issue, or opportunity for healthcare organizations of all types. The rise of several factors have been identified by industry experts and trade media as the primary reasons for the growth if consumerism in the healthcare industry:
High-Deductible Health Plans
Employers Shifting Costs from to Employees
Rapidly Increasing Healthcare Costs
And while traditionally a laggard in the adoption of digital technologies, healthcare organizations are not immune to the need to digitally transform themselves. Ignoring the need to adopt digital health technologies can only result in serious disruption, or even extinction, of healthcare organizations both large and small.
Comments on Healthcare Consumerism & Digital Health from HCEG Top 10 Survey Respondents
The executives and industry thought leaders participating in defining the 2019 HCEG Top 10 list at our recent 2018 Annual Forum in Minneapolis, MN included notes and commentary on the specific challenges, issues, and opportunities listed in the survey worksheet. The following are some of those comments related to healthcare consumerism and digital health:
“Data & Analytics (ranked #1) are table stakes to any consumer-focused products and services. And foundational to all Digital Health initiatives.”
“Population Health (ranked #3) could be considered ‘Total Consumer Health’”
Note: A number of participants expressed opinions that “Population Health” and “Total Consumer Health” could be considered the same thing. After some discussion, everyone agreed that Population Health should be considered as population-centric as opposed to person-centered.
“Social determinants of health have a huge impact on health outcome but as a health system we lack the ability to control/impact these barriers.”
“Connecting with our members on a frequent basis is very challenging. We struggle with identifying and delivering the right message at the right time.”
“Different departments have their own goals and objectives and these often create a disjointed member experience.”
“We must move from deploying largely unconnected tactical approaches to a more holistic, coordinated customer experience strategy.”
“It’s not always clear to us what matters to individual patients and how we can measure those things.”
How to Learn More About Healthcare Consumerism & Digital Health
The HCEG Top 10 list drives the content HCEG creates and delivers to its members and associates via blog posts like this, our Webinar Series Events and our Executive Leadership Forums. Accordingly, we’re pleased to share several complimentary opportunities to learn more about opportunities for healthcare organizations to meet the needs of increasingly educated and proactive healthcare consumers AND how specific digital health products and services are supporting the creation, delivery, and consumption of medical and non-medical services and products that improve health outcomes.

As part of our mission of promoting healthcare innovation, providing innovative knowledge support and helping to foster and sustain the development of life-long business relationships through real-life and virtual relationships, each year our members develop the HCEG Top 10 list of opportunities, issues, and challenges. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the HCEG Top 10 list of Challenges, Issues & Opportunities.
Healthcare Executives Identify Top Challenges, Issues & Opportunities for 2019
During our 2018 Annual Forum in Minneapolis last week, HCEG executive members from the payer, provider, and technology partner organizations voted on and ranked the Top 10 critical challenges, issues and opportunities they expect their organizations to face in the coming months and throughout 2019.
Starting with a list of 25 topical areas selected by HCEG Board members, advisors, and culled from leading industry research, 100+ forum participants held roundtable discussions over lunch to identify their specific table’s weighted top 10 items. The top ranking items from all tables were then combined to select the ten highest ranking items. Forum participants then ranked these items via a digital ranking process culminating in the official 2019 HCEG Top 10 list.
Our members expect the 2019 HCEG Top 10 items to have a significant and lasting impact in the way health plan members, health system patients, healthcare consumers, and other constituents all become engaged, digital consumers and responsible healthcare stakeholders in 2019 and beyond.
The 2019 HCEG Top 10 List
Data & Analytics: Leveraging data (especially clinical) to manage health and drive individual, provider and payer decisions.

Highlights of the 2019 HCEG Top 10 List
Last year’s item #7 Healthcare Reform dropped out of the Top 10 but only by one place to number eleven. And last year’s tenth ranking item – The Engaged Digital Consumer – was supplanted by fifth ranking item The Digital Healthcare Organization.
New entrants to the 2019 HCEG Top 10 list include
#7 – External Market Disruption
#8 – Operational Effectiveness
Additional details and analysis of the 2019 HCEG Top 10 list will further explore the reasoning through facilitated discussions at upcoming events and within the HCEG digital community.

A Few Surprises for Participants are Likely!
We’re working on a couple other bits and pieces that we think will be valuable to healthcare executives, industry leaders and others working to advance healthcare in the United States.

Voting and Ranking the 2019 HCEG Top 10 List
Over the last decade, a highlight of the HealthCare Executive Group’s annual forum is the development of the HCEG Top 10 list of challenges, issues, and opportunities that healthcare executives are currently facing. Starting with a list of approximately 25-30 items identified by HCEG members and sponsor partners, forum participants interact with each other to identify the top 10 challenges, issues and opportunities their organizations are facing. After interactive discussion in a roundtable format, the participants rank the items to create the 2019 HCEG Top 10 list.
A new approach this year is that candidates for the HCEG Top 10 list will be reviewed in a roundtable format facilitated by key sponsor partner thought leaders. The objective of the luncheon roundtable discussions will be to clarify the list of challenges, issues, and opportunities facing healthcare executives. Participants can add critical items that may have been missed and have an opportunity for deeper insight into the critical issues for the coming year. The final list of items will then be ranked by forum participants and formally shared with attendees prior to Thursday nights dinner. HCEG Executive Director Ferris Taylor and Chris Link, Sr Consultant at Change Healthcare, will orchestrate the process with assistance from HCEG support staff.
Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner – Supporting Opportunities to Connect
One of the hallmarks of HCEG’s Annual Forum events is the quality of the venue, the opportunity for intimate interaction among other healthcare executives, and well-planned food, beverage and entertainment accompaniments. Participants can expect to enjoy the following:
Welcome Reception Tuesday Evening
Lunch on Wednesday – With a keynote by Andy Slavitt
Offsite Dinner Reception on Wednesday
Breakfast on Thursday – With a keynote by Dan Buettner
Lunch on Thursday
Dinner + Closing Keynote on Thursday – With a keynote by Dr. Craig Samitt

Completing a successful core-system replacement project at a health plan or health system organization is a major undertaking. And successfully delivering a multi-million dollar digital transformation project is significantly enhanced by establishing a framework based on proven principles.
Framework for Successful Core-System Replacement Project
Last week, our sponsor partner Change Healthcare shared valuable insight in a webinar titled ‘The Four Pillars of a Successful Core-System Replacement Project.’ Jeanne Noe PMP, Director of Consulting Services and Mauricio ‘MJ’ Jimenez, Sr Manager of Consulting Services at Change Healthcare, shared information, insight and practical ideas on how to establish a framework for successful core-system implementation. This framework for a successful core-system replacement project is based on four pillars: 1-Implementation Readiness, 2-Governance, 3-Business Transformation and 4-Execution Framework.
This blog post recaps highlights and detailed content from the ‘Core-System Replacement Project’ webinar presented by Change Healthcare on August 2nd, 2018. Included is a recording of the webinar, the presentation slide deck, and additional information on establishing a framework for successful core system implementation. You can also check out this Twitter Moment summarizing live Tweets shared during the webinar.
Information, Insight & Actionable Ideas for Successful Core-System Implementation
After introductions by HCEG Executive Director Ferris Taylor, Jeanne Noe kicked off the webinar by sharing that the most important indicator of success in a Core-System Replacement project is a strong project foundation. Jeanne emphasized the importance of building a foundation on the Four Pillars of Success before the project progresses – not as you go along.
Why, How, What, Who & When of a Successful Core-System Replacement Project
The presentation from Change Healthcare was packed with information, actionable ideas and insight collected over the course of performing dozens of core-systems replacement projects for major healthcare payers and other risk-bearing entities.
Starting with the Taxonomy of Why, the importance of clearly defining – and widely sharing – the Strategic Vision, Business Goals, and Objectives were shared. Jeanne noted that explaining why a legacy system is being replaced is a key way to help all project team members achieve project objectives. Yet few healthcare organizations widely communicate the reasons for major initiatives like a core-system replacement project.
Jeanne went on to provide more details and commentary on the How, What, Who & When of a core-system replacement project. Since there’s simply too much information to share about the how, what, who and when in this recap, see the slides listed in the presentation deck for more. Better yet, watch the recording of The Four Pillars of a Successful Core-System Replacement Project here.
Roles Matters – Clearly Defined & Accountable
One of the most valuable bits of insight shared by Change Healthcare’s Jeanne Noe was that too many healthcare organizations make the very common mistake of not clearly defining roles, responsibilities and decision-making authority. Before the project starts – and periodically throughout the projects as objectives change and project resources come and go.
Clearly defining roles, responsibilities and decision-making authority seems obvious but is simply often not addressed.
Key Governance Components of a Successful Core-System Replacement Project
Change Healthcare presented two important actions healthcare executives sponsoring core-systems replacement projects MUST address at the start:
Establish a single point of accountability and expertise
Clearly identify decision makers and specialists for issue resolution
Risks, Actions, Issues, and Decisions – It’s a RAID!
Somewhat similar to the widely known RACI (Responsible-Accountable-Consulted-Informed) approach for managing large projects like core-systems replacement projects, Change Healthcare’s Core-System Implementation Framework uses the RAID framework to report, track, resolve and document project items.
As opposed to the somewhat passive activities defined via the popular RACI approach, Change Healthcare’s RAID approach to governing major projects emphasizes the importance of actions and rapid decision making within a framework of issue identification and risk management.
Business Transformation & Core-Systems Replacement Projects
Mauricio ‘MJ’ Jimenez, Sr Manager of Consulting Services at Change Healthcare continued the second half of the webinar by sharing information, insight, ideas, and tips on the 3rd and 4th Pillars of a Successful Core-System Replacement Project: Business Transformation and Execution Framework.
MJ emphasized that replacing your core-system is a business transformation, not an IT project or initiative. MJ offered the following as some key considerations to effect a true business transformation:
Assign senior resources to serve as ambassador to the rest of the organization.
Neglecting employees affected by the transformation will guarantee resistance to change.
Relevant content is key and its delivery is enabled through Role-Based Training
When meetings grow in number of participants, it is often a reflection of poor communication.
Execution Framework – The Most Critical of the Four Pillars
Core-system and other major projects undertaken by healthcare organizations will be for naught without a well-designed Execution Framework. Change Healthcare’s MJ Jimenez shared some key experiences, insights, and ideas on how to establish an effective Execution Framework. And offered ideas for executing brilliantly.
The key components of the Execution Framework described include the following:

The HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG) was honored to co-host a special Executive Leadership Roundtable May 9th at the recent HLTH Future of Healthcare Forum. HCEG partnered with the International Association of Innovation Professionals (IAOIP), the Center for Healthcare Innovation (CHI), the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) and special guest Dr. Sunnie Giles for the Boardroom-style event. The theme of the roundtable was Leadership, Trust and Skills in Overcoming Obstacles to Radical Innovation in Healthcare. Over a period of 3 hours, Charles Stellar, CEO of WEDI, moderated a panel of innovation and healthcare thought leaders as each shared their respective insight on the following topics:
Ferris Taylor, HCEG Executive Director, shared insights on innovation and technology gleaned from the HCEG member organizations, the HCEG Top 10 and 8th Annual Industry Pulse Survey
Brett Trusko, CEO of IAOIP, shared an International overview of Innovation Certification programs
Lynn Hanessian, Chief Strategist, Edelman Health representing CHI, shared info and highlights from the Edelmen Trust Barometer research, and
Dr. Sunnie Giles shared key findings from her research and recent book supporting “The New Science of Radical Innovation”
Insight into Obstacles to Radical Innovation in Healthcare
After each panelist concluded their presentations and key takeaways, an open Q & A period between panelists and attendees took place. This discussion evolved into an intimate engagement among Executive Leadership Roundtable attendees ensuing into a free-flowing, rather ‘un-conference-like’ approach. Interaction was so engaging that many session participants hung around AFTER the official end of the Executive Leadership roundtable to continue the discussion, network with each other and build professional relationships that are destined to accelerate more considerations in the future.
Insights on Radical Innovation in Healthcare – The HCEG Top 10 and 8th Annual Industry Pulse Research
Ferris Taylor connected the development of the annual issues to the common theme of innovation and technology and then shared five highlights of the 8th Annual Industry Pulse report – a survey of 2000 healthcare stakeholders jointly conducted by HCEG and its sponsor partner, Change Healthcare.
Social determinants of health have now transcended buzzword status
High-deductible health plans are not converting passive patients into active healthcare consumers
Mobile/digital health adoption is not just about functionality and interoperability, but is significantly impacted by privacy and security concerns – more about trust than technology
Industry attention is turning to blockchain, artificial intelligence, robotic process automation and other advanced technologies
Healthcare is transitioning from negative to positive incentives to influence consumer behavior faster than most expect
The Edelmen Trust Barometer
After Ferris Taylor set the context for key areas of need and innovation in healthcare, Lynn Hanessian shared a detailed overview of the Edelman Trust Barometer – a measure of people’s trust in business, government, NGOs and media. Lynn opened with a sobering chart showing a historical decline in trust over the period of 2017 to 2018 – with 14 of 15 sectors showing an overall decrease in trust.
Lynn also shared insight from the Edelman report showing the division of opinion as to the impact of Tech to the Cost of Healthcare: 23% of respondents believed that technology will make healthcare MORE expensive over the next 5 years and 16% believe technology will make healthcare LESS expensive.
Overview of International Innovation Certification Programs
Brett Trusko of the IAOIP shared an overview of how the IAOIP is on a mission to professionalize the practice of innovation around the world. Brett shared the following methods that the IAOPI believes will be critical to promote the IAOIP’s mission of advancing innovation:
Brett also shared an overview of the Current Body of Best Practices for Innovation, why ‘professionalization’ of innovation is important, his beliefs as to why Failure to Innovate is NOT an Option, He closed his presentation with What You Can Do Now to advance the professionalization of innovation.
The New Science of Radical innovation
Dr. Sunnie Giles rounded out the initial roundtable presentations by sharing some highlights from her new book “The New Science of Radical Innovation.” Sunnie shared:
A Definition of Radical Innovation
The Concept of VUCA (especially in healthcare): Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity & Ambiguity
4 Factors That Make Radical Innovation Challenging for Leaders
How to Harness Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity & Ambiguity to Increase Innovation in Healthcare
Open Discussion About Innovation at HLTH Future of Healthcare Forum
All in all, the Executive Leadership Roundtable at HLTH was an informative and engaging event. Of the 120+ registrants, over half participated in the roundtable with a number of walk-ins and with many of those individuals remaining afterwards to continue the discussion about the opportunities and challenges for innovation in healthcare. Given that the HLTH Association Day was the afternoon of the last day of the 4-day HLTH forum, all participants and presenters considered it a great success!
HCEG appreciates the collaboration with Brett Trusko from the Association of Innovation Professionals, Lynn Hanessian representing the Center for Healthcare Innovation and Dr. Sunnie Giles of the Quantum Leadership Group. HCEG would also like to extend a special thanks to Charles Stellar of WEDI for moderating the panel and representing WEDI’s role in innovation and technology so well.
Connect with Each Other and The HealthCare Executive Group
If you enjoyed the 2018 HLTH Future of Healthcare Forum, or would like to participated in a greatly scaled down yet equally valuable version of the forum, consider being part of the HealthCare Executive Group’s Annual Forum taking place in Minneapolis, MN on September 12 – 14th. We have a special event planned to celebrate our 30th year anniversary. Moreover, if you’re a healthcare executive who can benefit from collaborating with your C-suite peers, consider becoming a HCEG member.
The inaugural 2018 HTLH Future of Healthcare forum took place in Las Vegas earlier this month with 3,500+ attendees and 375+ speakers assembled over four days starting May 5th with the HLTH Hackathon. And HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG) members and sponsor partners were there – interpreting and absorbing key takeaways, presenting as speakers and panelists in various sessions and adding their own unique support and participation at this highly touted, new healthcare conference billed by organizers as ‘The Hottest, Newest, Largest and Most Important Healthcare Event.”
Sessions at HLTH were organized into five tracks that varied each day. So, with 100+ sessions over four days, there were about 4 or 5 sessions covering any particular track – a reasonable and manageable number. HLTH event organizers also assigned all sessions in each track to the same room location; making it easy to navigate between tracks and sessions. There were a few crowded sessions and some rather sparsely populated sessions.
Based on an informal survey of sessions attended by HCEG members and a scan of various recaps of the HLTH Future of HealthCare forum over the past two weeks, a few common threads emerged.
Must Address Multiple Conditions, High-Cost Patients & Care Transition
Many of the sessions at the HLTH event addressed the importance of providing cost-effective services and products to three groups of people:
People with multiple chronic conditions – particularly diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, asthma and depression.
Patients who drive a large percentage of total health care costs
Patients discharged from the inpatient setting.
Health Happens Outside the Exam Room & Hospital
And many of these same sessions and more than a few of the exhibitors shared information, ideas and approaches aimed at addressing these three populations by focusing on social determinants of health. Quite a few speakers and panelists spoke of the need to extend health services beyond the walls of the treatment room and out into the local community.
As noted in the recent Industry Pulse Research Survey co-authored with HCEG sponsor Change Healthcare, payers are beginning to integrate community programs and resources into their medical practices. Only 18.9% of responders said they were not currently integrating any social determinants of health, a dramatic change over the last few years.
Payment Innovation in Healthcare is Desperately Needed
Another oft-mentioned topic at the HLTH forum was value-based care and the need for payers and providers to come together on sharing not only upside risk but downside risk as well. While the rise of personalized medicine, targeted therapies, specialty pharmaceuticals and molecular diagnostics offer tremendous opportunity, payers are still growing their sea legs figuring out how to measure outcomes and associated value models – at the same time as providers and the healthcare supply-side are beginning to demonstrate outcome values in risk-based payment contracts.
What’s clear is that rapidly evolving medical technologies must be simultaneously supported by reasonable regulatory frameworks and payment model development. Hopefully, the federal government will serve as the vanguard for innovation in the area of reimbursement.
Engagement: The Most Un-Buzzworthy Word at HLTH?
In one session, the moderator quizzed the panel as to what industry buzzword they disliked most and ‘engagement’ was the clear winner (loser?) among panelists as the most over-used and unclear healthcare buzzword. The CEO of Maestro Health, Rob Butler suggested that people don’t want engagement with a medical condition but rather to be connected to their health system and support networks.
HCEG Members & Sponsors at the HLTH Future of Healthcare Forum
More than a few of our HCEG sponsor partners were at the HLTH event – speaking in sessions, as sponsors, participating in 1:1 and small group meetings and exhibiting.
Softheonwas active in several ways with sponsoring the HACK/HLTH ‘hackathon’ where participants collaborated and created meaningful solutions in competition for over $80,000 in prizes. Eugene Sayan, Softheon’s CEO also presented ‘Convergence of Health and Non-Health Data’ along with Jeff Margolis, CEO of WellTok.
Not to stop with those two events, Softheon also joined Lyft to sponsor Wyclef Jean at the JEWEL Nightclub on Tuesday. Softheon also was one of the larger exhibitors at the HLTH Future of Healthcare forum. Check out pictures of HLTH’s After-Hours Activities here.
Change in Healthcare at the HLTH Future of Healthcare Forum
Change Healthcare’s President and CEO Neil de Crescenzo keynoted Tuesday’s General Session “The Patient Experience: Making it Easier for Healthcare Providers to Make it Easier” and shared some common-sense solutions to revolutionize patient experiences, utilizing healthcare data in ways which enable providers to orchestrate and improve patient interactions – all while delivering a seamless experience aimed at improving patient loyalty and new patient attraction.
Change Healthcare was also a major sponsor, giving the first 3,000 attendees a high quality hot/cold mug and having a dominant position in the Exhibit Hall. Change HC also teamed up with Adobe and Microsoft to “Put the ‘Consumer’ in Healthcare Consumer Engagement.” enable health systems to better engage with patients. The joint solution will use Change Healthcare’s Intelligent Healthcare Network, Adobe’s Experience Cloud, and Microsoft’s Azure offering to improve customers’ healthcare experience. You can learn more about this venture here.
CareCentrix CEO John P. Driscoll was a panelist along with David Muhlestein, Chief Research Officer at Leavitt Partners on a Tuesday session titled ‘Aligning Health Policy to Health Possibility.’ This session addressed the potential for technology to transform the health industry through more innovative – and perhaps disruptive – health policy. There were a few moments of ‘extreme interaction’ between the two panelists.
HealthEdgesponsored one of the few handfuls of ‘Meeting Pods’ at the HLTH event. These small group meeting spaces along the hallways seemed like a good idea and through focused effort, HealthEdge had it pod occupied to clients and prospects during the entire HLTH event.
Announcements at HLTH2018 – Large, Small & Mostly Meaningful
One of the interesting media related events at the HLTH event was the “Make an Announcement” opportunity for all HLTH attendees. All sponsors, exhibitors, speakers or otherwise were able to make an announcement about new products, venture funds being launched, collaborations and other ‘newsworthy events’ at a pre-arranged time in a dedicated media area. Some of the major announcements included:
Funding Founders – 6 Minute, Double Opt-In VC ‘speed dating/networking session’ took place about 300 times early in the day for one hour. Based on the early morning start time and lively attendance, the Hosted Buyer and Funding Founders sessions seemed like worthwhile features of the HLTH forum.
Great Meal Service – The HLTH organizers offered a nice selection of good food, well-orchestrated for a conference of this size
Digital Content Delivery, Networking and Logistical Support at the HLTH2018 Forum
In a future post we’ll share some insight and opinion about some of the unique ways in which the HLTH Future of Healthcare Forum organizers differentiated their forum and provided extra value opportunities to attendees.
HLTH 2018 Association Day: Executive Leadership Roundtable – HCEG, CHI, IAIOP and WEDI
As noted above, HCEG was honored to join other associations in an Executive Leadership Roundtable (ELR) as part HLTH’s 2018 Association Day. The theme of the ELR was centered on leadership in healthcare innovation and complimented by author Dr. Sunnie Giles highlighting her just published book on “The New Science of Radical Innovation.” Look for a recap of the roundtable as part of HLTH’s Association Day in a following post.
Ongoing Press Coverage of the 2018 HLTH Future of Healthcare Forum
