HCEG Kicks Off 2018 with  Top 10 Webinar
Last week the Health Care Executive Group kicked off the first entry in our 2018 Webinar Series:   The 2018 HCEG Top 10 - Healthcare Opportunities, Challenges & Issues. 

Our new board chair, Kim Sinclair, CIO at  Boston Medical Center Health Plan,  moderated the webinar and was joined by Ferris Taylor, HCEG's Executive Director and Consultant to Arches Health Plan and David Gallegos, Sr VP of Consulting Services at  Change Healthcare,  one of HCEG's long-time sponsor partners.
A Few Highlights from the Webinar
"We are in a major transformation of healthcare from the consumer to the buyer being the employer to the consumer."
- Ferris Taylor
"So fundamentally, I think consumerism is about giving people what they want. So, at a high level that means affordable, accessible high-quality care that improves their overall quality of life."
 - David Gallegos
Check out this blog post - the first of a series of posts on the 2018 HCEG Top 10 - that provides an overview of the discussion between Kim, Ferris and David. Included are their thoughts about what they consider the most Interesting Items on 2018 HCEG Top 10 List , what they're seeing in the industry regarding these items and their perspective on top ranked topics such as value-based payment and healthcare consumerism.
