Fall Leadership Forum 2023

Event Date: 10/17/2023 - 10/20/2023

Event Overview

 

Board-ready market intelligence on the topics that matter most

The 2023 Fall Leadership Forum features a completely reimagined format, designed specifically to support the challenging discussions every Alliance member health plan is having with their board. The Alliance will syndicate critical competitive landscape research, deliver the results at our Fall Leadership Forum, and make the proprietary materials available to member plans for their own use.  This new approach will deliver board-ready market intelligence on the most important topics to our member plans, helping you (re)set your strategy at this critical inflection point.  

 


Meeting highlights

An accelerated study of Alliance members’ multi-year strategies powers the meeting’s learning objectives and the development of detailed content requirements for each consultant recruited to the faculty.  The final line-up is coming soon, but you can expect deep dives into the following content areas: 

  • The big bets from national payers and delivery systems, and the impact in Alliance member markets
  • Major trends in physician and provider-led organizations
  • The shifting digital innovation space, with special emphasis on machine learning, robotic process automation and artificial intelligence
  • Government-sponsored care and dynamics at the federal and state levels: Winners and losers
  • The state of play across core lines of business: Medicaid, MA, exchanges -- and the future of commercial for small plans.

 


Why attend?

Investing the time to connect with your Alliance executive peers at our in-person Leadership Forums consistently pays huge dividends.  The 2023 Fall Forum will be no exception.  Register now and secure your room before the room block sells out.  Participants will benefit from the following: 

  1. Gain exclusive access to proprietary content on the competitive landscape for use in your own environmental scans, strategic planning, and board engagement
  2. Efficiently audition a lineup of nationally recognized subject matter experts who can support your board education on critical topics
  3. Move beyond superficial discussions with the help of carefully crafted sessions and spaces that connect you with your Alliance network of executive peers
  4. Enjoy a private preview of HPA's new leadership development curriculum and provide critical guidance during our focus group session to inform the last steps of design
  5. Get a timely update from the Alliance leadership on the organization's 2024 operational plan and key strategic milestones, plus share feedback and provide guidance and insight at the Fall Board Meeting (our board meetings are always open to Alliance health plans) 

  


Who should attend

The 2023 Fall Leadership Forum is designed as an executive retreat for Alliance member plan CEOs and their top leadership teams. Executives with responsibility for preparing board presentations and board education will find this event particularly useful, as will Chief Strategy Officers and other executives with responsibility for developing, evolving, and communicating your organization’s strategic plan and key milestones and objectives.
