As you focus on making health care better, more affordable, and more consumer-centric, take advantage of the creative thinking at AHIP’s Executive Leadership Summit. Health care and non-industry thought leaders will focus on new opportunities and fresh solutions, and help provide clarity for the year ahead.

Join other health plan CEOs and their senior leadership teams* as we take a micro- and macro- view of how our industry creates positive change. During the Executive Leadership Summit, we’ll explore everything from innovative new care delivery systems and payment models to the ways technology is driving improvements in quality, efficiency, and consumer satisfaction.

Think universally. Act locally.

In this synergistic atmosphere, you’ll have an opportunity to take a big-picture look at our industry and delve into details about the communities we serve and the ways we serve them. We know your time is valuable, so the agenda is designed to maximize your time away from the office. You’ll return to your organization with fresh thinking and greater clarity for the year ahead.
