2024 Summit Schedule

Our time in Laguna is designed to share new ideas, connect with old and new friends, and focus on the future. We’ve built the schedule to illuminate insights and inspire opportunities through organic and provocative conversations. Big Discussions feature leaders who are pioneering solutions at health care’s largest organizations, spurring disruptive innovations, and setting policy to advance health goals for the nation. Intimate discussions and activities have a way of opening the mind and enabling ideas and insights to flow. Our goal is for you to leave these discussions better equipped to effect real strategic change in your organization and beyond.

The 2024 Summit will feature a special “reunion” of the esteemed leaders of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) in celebration of the 20th anniversary of its formation to spotlight the monumental strides we’ve made in health care and chart the course of technological advancement. We are excited to welcome David Blumenthal, MD, David Brailer, MD, PhD, Karen DeSalvo, MD, Robert Kolodner, MD, Farzad Mostashari, MD, Donald Rucker, MD, Micky Tripathi, PhD, and Vindell Washington, MD. This will be an opportune occasion to reflect on the accomplishments but more importantly to frame the agenda moving forward amid so much AI-based innovation.

The 2024 Summit will feature the Confab for Advancing Women in Leadership on Wednesday morning. Following the Confab Big Discussion for all Summit participants, Health Evolution Fellows are invited to join the small-group Confab Get Real breakout discussions on Wednesday afternoon.

Components of the Summit

Exclusive Connections

For leaders of companies deeply involved in the transformation of health care, having a dedicated place and time to meet with peers, learn new approaches and focus on the future is invaluable. The Summit is a rare gathering that enables the most prominent executives, innovators, policymakers and investors from across health care services, IT and life science to work through critical issues facing the industry today.

Exceptional Locations

Summit will be held April 19-21, 2023, at the stunning Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel and Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California. Perched high on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this coastal paradise inspires out-of-the box thinking. The sea does not like to be restrained; nor do the minds that gather at this event, creating an environment ripe for innovation.
