Dear HealthCare Executive,

The year of 2018 marks 30 years since a group of like-minded healthcare executives came together for the purpose of discussing the individual opportunities and challenges within their organizations and the healthcare industry as a whole.

Since then, the HealthCare Executive Group has solidified its position as an exclusive organization of healthcare leaders, innovators and disruptors, providing continuous opportunities for real and relevant interaction and dialogue. For each of the past 10+ years, HCEG members have created the HCEG Top 10 based on issues, opportunities and challenges they face.

I'm very excited for HCEG in 2018. We'll be participating in various industry events including the HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, the Future of Healthcare organized by and the 2018 AHIP Institute. We're also planning our 30th Anniversary Annual Forum in Minneapolis September 12th-14th. And, of course, we'll be sharing both original and curated content that dives deeper into each of the 2018 HCEG Top 10 and the topics our healthcare executive members care about.

I welcome you all to not only leverage the information we provide but to also share our newsletter with your colleagues.

Kim Sinclair,
Incoming Chairman of the Board - The HealthCare Executive Group
Chief Information Officer
