Join us in Nashville for Connect 2022!

Helping Health Care Executives Achieve Their Transformation Goals.

Health Evolution is announcing Connect, an invitation-only, curated convening of CEOs and C-Suite executives from providers, payers, and life science organizations, along with technology leaders, investors, innovators, and policymakers. Connect 2022 will be held from September 14-16, 2022, in Nashville. Health Evolution Connect builds on the renowned Health Evolution Summit by probing critical emerging issues and challenges in health care with the same intensity and candor, but with a particular focus on near-term pathways for change and transformation.

Connect participants will experience a mix of unscripted panel discussions featuring top industry thought leaders and interactive small-group roundtable discussions. Leaders will enjoy ample time for networking and engaging with peers and counterparts across the health care ecosystem. Connect is designed for CEOs and C-Suite executives more broadly, and we encourage CEOs and their leadership teams to participate and learn together. Executives will leave Nashville with new strategies to accelerate progress, new relationships to amplify impact, and new perspectives on leading their organizations through a volatile time in our industry.

Topics for Connect’s Big Discussions include:

  • Exploring how the volatile economy will affect purchasing, care delivery and innovation
  • Surveying the health policy landscape beyond the midterm elections
  • Maximizing the impact of initiatives to advance health equity
  • Confronting misinformation and restoring the public’s trust in health care
  • Building the C-suite of the future
  • Achieving scale in home-based care models
  • Harnessing the latest innovations in women’s health

Connect will also be an opportunity to highlight Health Evolution Confab — the special initiative to advance women leaders in health care — through large and small group sessions that will examine practices for promoting greater gender diversity in the most senior executive roles and board positions.
