Insights for Healthcare Leaders
Colleagues in Healthcare,

I hope that everyone enjoyed the recent Thanksgiving Holiday.

It’s hard to believe we’re in the homestretch of 2019! These last few weeks have been busy ones for HCEG. 

It was great to connect with so many old and new faces whom we’re looking forward to seeing again in September for our Annual Forum in Boston .

Just this week, we participated in the WEDI Winter Conference where we presented the session “Challenges, Issues and Opportunities: A Look at HCEG’s Top 10 for 2020” , and compared the 2020 Top 10 , to the previous two years of critical items. 

We’re also busily preparing to attend AHIP Consumer Experience and Digital Health Forum (AHIP CX) on December 10-11th in Chicago. HCEG will be presenting the session What Should Be Keeping Health Care Executives Up At Night? on December 10th at 11am. 

Additionally, we’ll be supporting our Sponsoring Partners Zipari , Change Healthcare and Instamed in their participation at AHIP CX, which includes a Ziparty with Zipari that we’re very much looking forward to! Registration details are provided below. 

Please connect with us in Chicago, if you’ll be there!

Until our next newsletter!
