NEHI's 2017 Annual Conference

Join NEHI's 2017 Annual Conference on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC. The theme this year is "Fresh Starts, Enduring Challenges," and the focus will be on new opportunities and ongoing challenges in health and health care innovation.

Sessions will include a conversation with CEOs of the top health care groups in Washington, DC on what's ahead in health policy and the impact on health systems, insurers, biopharmaceutical companies, device manufacturers, and patients. The program presentations will also explore what's next in value-based payment; the impact that cognitive computing and artificial intelligence are having on the health care system; and a look at advances in cancer therapy and treatment and the next phase of the cancer "moonshot." 

The day-long conference will be proceeded by a member-exclusive dinner on April 25, 2017. For those headed to Health Datapalooza on April 27-28, our conference precedes that annual event, which will also take place at the Washington Hilton.
