About membership

Today’s hospital and health system executives face intensifying margin pressures, unprecedented competition, the looming shift to risk, an increasingly empowered consumer, regulatory and political uncertainty, and so much more.

For nearly 40 years, we’ve helped hospital and health system leaders like you lead their organizations amid a constantly evolving health care landscape and overcome a range of strategic and operational challenges.

Our team of experts work with hospital and health system leaders across the U.S. every day. We identify the most pressing strategic and operational issues, study progressive institutions nationwide to find best practices, and then distill our insights into National Meetings, research reports, webconferences, case studies, data and analytic tools, and more. Finally, we help you figure out which solutions work best for your organization and educate and empower leaders to drive change across your organization.
