5. Message from Scott Becker: With Lauren Groeper's team and the help of Chuck Lauer and Rhoda Weiss, we have largely completed the agenda for next year's annual meeting. The meeting will include more than 160 hospital and health system speakers as well as a former US president and great moderators and CEOs. The meeting is again co-chaired by Chuck Lauer and Rhoda Weiss. The meeting focuses around CEOs, CFOs, Health IT and Quality. This year we've add a thought leaders and revenue cycle track. As in past years we have pop health, ACOs, strategy and affiliation tracks.        


We are right now working to complete the revenue cycle track. Here we give preference to talks that include system and hospital leaders. If you would like to suggest a talk or speaker, please email either Lauren or myself at
