Health System & Health Plan Leadership Forum 2018

Event Date: 6/26/2018 - 6/29/2018

Event Overview

Health system and health plan leaders convene in Chicago to discuss quality, sustainability and growth

Achieving affordability and growth

Hosted by the Health Plan Alliance and the American Hospital Association (AHA)

This event is open to Alliance health plan, physician group and health system executives, as well as AHA member systems and their health plans.  

 


 

The managed care market is seeing massive disruptive change: from major employers contracting directly with health systems; to new players entering the space, heightening the focus on healthcare affordability.

Now, more than ever, health plans and their health systems need strategic alignment to achieve a sustainable market differentiation and move into new business and care models. This year's event will assemble health plan and health system executive leaders, along with the industry's leading experts, for a focused discussion on the topics of quality, affordability, sustainability and growth.
