Health Evolution late Wednesday announced that it is postponing the 2020 Summit because of the pandemic coronavirus outbreak.

Here’s the statement:  

First, the entire Health Evolution Team sends our condolences for the people who have fallen victim to the virus, especially those who have died, and their families.  

We also share both concern and appreciation for those on the front lines of the evolving coronavirus outbreak. We are indebted for your strong leadership during this challenging time. 

Based on data from the WHO, CDC and other organizations as well as feedback from our community, leadership, participants and sponsors, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Summit in order to allow health care leaders to focus fully on the fight against coronavirus.  

At the heart of our mission, Health Evolution informs and connects health care leaders to solve our greatest challenges. We’re planning to stay true to that mission with a virtual gathering of health care leaders to share best practices on pandemic preparedness and mitigation.  The Pandemic Response: A Public-Private Call to Action virtual gathering will be held during the originally scheduled Summit hours, Thursday, April 2 from 8 am to 12 pm PT. 

This gathering is open to all health care leaders as a service to our community and to the people we all serve. Please join us if you can.   

Also, the pre-Summit Executive Briefing on AI & ML has been converted to a virtual gathering and open to all members of the Health Evolution community. This gathering will occur on April 1 from 8 am to noon pm PT. 

We will share detailed agendas, registration information, and more in the coming days.
