Forum Roundtables

Forum Roundtables are comprised of cross-industry leaders focused on three key areas critical to the industry’s growth: new care models, advances in health IT, and advancing community health and health equity.

The Roundtables strike a balance between near-term COVID-related challenges and long-term impact on major issues in the post-pandemic world through professional facilitation and deep subject matter expertise. The groups will develop and widely disseminate recommendations to make an impact on provider, payer and life sciences CEOs, policymakers and thought leaders collaborating for industry-wide change.
