An invitation-only retreat of health care leaders
Next Summit: April 14–16, 2021
Candid discussions. Big minds. Real impact.
Health Evolution Summit is an invitation-only gathering that engages leaders of companies deeply involved in the transformation of health care. CEOs, C-suite executives, innovators, policymakers and investors from across health care services, IT and life science convene for the Summit’s intimate environment to candidly debate ideas, build relationships and inspire creative solutions essential to the industry’s future.
Our cross-industry leaders are influential changemakers who lead and drive the industry, setting the bar for others to follow. Leaders know the Summit as an opportunity to foster peer-to-peer connections that drive meaningful change. Each spring we support our community of CEOs and C-suite executives from health plan, health system and life science organizations, as well as leading health care innovators and select policy makers as they come together in their efforts to create a high quality and efficient health care system based on prevention, affordability, access, equity and outcomes for people and their communities.
The Summit report highlights key takeaways and video insights from our time in Laguna. The 2019 Summit convened a cross-section of prominent health care CEOs and leaders who opined, debated and shared their diverse perspectives on the forces shaping one-fifth of the U.S. economy. Invariably, their interactions forecast and shape the health care industry’s transformation.
