All-Star Lineup Headlines 10th Annual Employer Leadership Summit!

This year’s sold-out Annual Employer Leadership Summit sizzled with excitement as local and national thought leaders explored cutting-edge approaches for working together to bring affordable back into health care.

Transitioning our health care system from one that is expensive and inequitable to one affordable and equitable is as “simple” as keeping people healthy and providing consistent, coordinated and outstanding patient care. Whether the Summit topic was about making reform a reality, eliminating no- and low-value care, measuring value, or preventing and treating chronic and serious conditions, this was the pervading message at the sold-out Annual Employer Leadership Summit.
