2020 Executive Leadership Track

“Accelerating Change”

Exclusively designed for executives including Premier member hospital and health system CEOs, along with others from the executive suite. Teams are encouraged.


According to Premier CEO Susan DeVore’s recent Health Affairs article, “2019 will be a truly pivotal year, one where competitive forces unleash real, broad-based change. The key will be to see which providers adapt to and realize improvements from this change and which get left behind.” The changes include: the push to value-based care and related alternative payment models; deeper physician involvement in transformational strategies; greater number of providers contracting directly with employers; major reform in the pharmaceutical market; and more deliberate utilization of EMR and other technologies to transform big data into small data. The content offered in this track will prepare you to embrace these changes armed with strategies and tactics that work. Don’t be left behind.

The Executive Leadership Track replaces the previous C-Suite Forum.
