Publisher's Letter: January 2016

January Issue. This is the Leadership Issue of Becker's Hospital Review, featuring a list of 10 things that will demand the attention of hospital and health system CEOs and CFOs in 2016. From the presidential election to pending insurer mergers, several experts weighed in to help identify the biggest events, trends and challenges that will affect healthcare organizations. The issue also contains a recap of the Becker's Hospital Review Annual CEO Roundtable + CFO/CIO Roundtable, which took place in Chicago this past November and featured nearly 80 executive leader speakers. The two-day event sparked a great deal of discussion and debate, and we are happy to share some of the leaders' remarks with readers. I hope you enjoy reading.
