Insights for Healthcare Leaders
Dear Healthcare Colleagues, 

As the HCEG team prepares to head to Orlando for HIMSS20 , I’m excited to announce the 10th Annual Industry Pulse Report , a comprehensive dive into the Industry Pulse Survey. I invite you to join HCEG on Tuesday, February 25th for a webinar on “ Industry Pulse check: How providers and payers see 2020 healthcare trends ”. Learn about what healthcare leaders are thinking, about the main challenges they’re facing, and how they think about consumerism, SDOH initiatives, and the transition to value-based care. 

I hope you’ll join us on the webinar, and connect with us and our sponsors if you are attending HIMSS20 . We’re proud to be wearing our brand new HIMSS20 Collaborator hat!

Thanks in advance for taking the time out of your busy schedules to keep up with HCEG and learn of our upcoming events and webinars.

Until next time,

Executive Director
The HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG)
2020 Industry Pulse Research
We’re pleased to announce the release of the 2020 Industry Pulse Report. This survey is based on the 2020 HCEG Top 10 list of challenges, issues, and opportunities and takes the pulse of a broad spectrum of healthcare industry leaders, change makers, and other participants nationwide. Over 80% of respondents were at the director level or above with 25% of all respondents in the C-Suite.

For more information on the 10th Annual Industry Pulse and to access a complimentary copy of the 41-page report, see our recent blog post .
2020 Industry Pulse Report in the News
The 10th Annual Industry Pulse Report released last week has received tremendous coverage and commentary by healthcare industry media and thought leaders. 

A common theme identified by the report is that payers and providers differ on their viewpoints about healthcare consumerism, value-based care and the transformation of the healthcare delivery system about as often as they agree.

What if instead of purchasing a specific plan from an insurer, employers established a defined contribution health plan via an HRA for each employee? Each employee would use their HRA funds to purchase an individual policy of their choice from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace. These policies would have no pre-existing conditions and would provide all essential health benefits, mitigating risk of discrimination.

Join HCEG and our long-time sponsor Softheon to discuss how such a system will come with a series of benefits.
