Time and again, healthcare CEOs have expressed the significant value that ACHE’s Congress on Healthcare Leadership plays in staying on the pulse of today’s healthcare challenges and solutions. Whether it’s gleaning new insights through peer-to-peer conversations or immersing in cutting-edge training, Congress is the event for healthcare thought leadership.

Current healthcare trends indicate a high interest among CEOs in creating a culture of safety, particularly as healthcare shifts to a value-based system. This year’s Congress is specifically designed to bring these trends to the forefront, while also helping you leverage peer connection. Following are just some of the sessions that speak directly to the needs of today’s healthcare CEO.

Peer-To-Peer Exchange

To ensure you have the opportunity to interface with your peers at Congress, consider these sessions exclusive to CEOs:

  • CEO Boot Camp: Learn about the primary determinants for success in today’s changing healthcare environment. Designed for CEOs with less than five years’ experience. (Sunday)
  • CEO Circle Session With Former Governor Michael O. Leavitt: Leavitt will share observations about where U.S. healthcare is trending and what to expect during the next 15 years. For CEO Circle members and hospital CEOs. (Tuesday)
  • CEO Special Interest Area Networking Breakfast: Open to all CEOs to connect over the current successes and challenges facing their organizations. (Wednesday)


High-Reliability Healthcare Boot Camp (Sunday)

Coming out of a new partnership between ACHE and the IHI/NPSF Lucian Leape Institute, this session will lay the foundation for achieving the ultimate goal of zero harm. Based on the new report Leading a Culture of Safety, A Blueprint for Success, you’ll learn how adopting a robust process improvement can provide both a positive ROI and substantial quality care improvements.
