In July 2015, CannonDesign hosted a Peer Colloquium Panel Discussion as part of our Health Practice Executive Education Program. Panelists included leaders of renowned healthcare organizations from across the nation. During the panel discussions many topics were covered, including the impact of Medicaid expansion and meaningful use dollars, strategies for effectively managing populations, responses to the growing consumerism in healthcare, and leveraging partnerships to support more effective growth strategies. This Executive Summary highlights the major themes from the discussion in hopes that it will spur new ideas as we all look to develop solutions to the greatest challenges facing the healthcare industry.
