2018 Executive Leadership Track

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


Per Premier president and CEO Susan DeVore’s winter 2018 Health Affairs article, after a transitional year of political uncertainty and debate, “Congress has moved healthcare away from the center of their public policy agenda, creating more certainty and a clearer view.” With clearer skies ahead, it is time to move forward with strategies and plans that will secure your organization’s future in an evolving, competitive market. To help you consider all the options, this track offers a unique format through which you may gather the perspectives of your healthcare leader peers from across the Premier alliance who will share best practices and lessons learned.

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


Register for the 2018 Breakthroughs Conference as a Premier member/general attendee and then follow the prompts. No special access code is needed to register.

From here, scroll down to the specific sessions that you are interested in and click on them to add them to your itinerary. Codes for this track begin with EXL. Employ this same procedure for Thursday, June 21. Follow the remaining instructions to complete your registration.


This timely educational track offers:

  • An elite platform for sharing strategic healthcare leadership and business content

  • Innovative solutions to the most challenging problems today’s executives face
  • Revolutionary, compelling calls to action that transcend the event
