About the Health Care Executive Board

The Health Care Executive Board is Advisory Board International’s membership-based research program supporting chief executive officers and other non-clinical executives in their efforts to achieve sustainable performance improvement.

We provide expert advice and innovative practices tested by peers at thousands of progressive institutions around the world. Our members benefit from the learning of other health care organisations working to address the industry’s most pressing strategic and operational questions, such as:

  • What can I do as a leader to ensure future organisational success?
  • What strategies can I employ to rein in supply and labour cost growth?
  • How can I ensure my organisation’s strategic plan will maximise performance now and in the future?
  • Which new services will be necessary to manage an aging, chronically ill population?
  • What are the most effective strategies for increasing staff and doctor engagement?
  • What is the impact of clinical innovation on future technology investment strategy?
