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, interactive small-group roundtable discussions, and ample time for networking. Discussion topics include:

  • Surveying the health policy landscape beyond the midterm elections
  • Exploring how the volatile economy will affect purchasing, care delivery, and innovation
  • Achieving scale in home-based care models
  • Maximizing the impact of initiatives to advance health equity
  • From the Great Resignation to the Great Redesign
  • Confronting misinformation and restoring the public’s trust in health care
  • 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.
