Leadership Summit 2011 started off with one of the nation’s most well-known health care CEOs highlighting the issues shaping the current health care environment. Discussions & debates then proceeded to shed light on the tectonic shifts occurring in health care and how top leaders are adapting so they can take advantage. Speakers focused critically on the drivers of the next generation of health care, including winners and losers. The final day of the Summit began with a CEO innovator who has become a household name telling us how to drive successful change, then concluded with a look at the potential impact of growing tension between innovation and regulation around personalized medicine.
