Fall Leadership Forum 2019

Event Date: 11/5/2019 - 11/7/2019

Event Overview


 

2019 Fall Leadership Forum: Answering the call of industry transformation

Alliance members and their provider owners and partners experience the shifting healthcare landscape in a truly unique way.  We are embedded in our communities and tightly bound to the fiscal and physical health of our regions.  Our strategies are not just informed by the headline-generating plays of the likes of Amazon, but also by the local terrain.  Many of our organizations are mission-driven and so the 5-year strategy isn't just about growth - it's about solidifying ourselves as the platform for health and healthcare in our communities.

At the 2019 Fall Leadership Forum, executives from Alliance member health plans are joined by delivery system leaders, as well as experts in innovation, transformational leadership, workforce development and more.  We'll be exploring how regional and provider-sponsored payers view their organizations' readiness for transformation, and will share how leaders are bridging the gap through iterative innovation.  Join us for two days of powerful panels, thoughtful interviews, and the unique networking and sharing that is the hallmark of the Health Plan Alliance.
