Critical Choices: How Health Systems Navigate an Evolving Market
- January 2020

Should health systems consider a merger or acquisition or stay independent? How much should they invest in physicians, clinicians, and technology? How can they prepare to capitalize on risk-based opportunities? How will they compete with retailers like Amazon and Walmart as they enter the healthcare provider space?
Over three dozen chief executives of hospitals, health systems and physician groups gathered at the 2019 HealthLeaders CEO Exchange in Park City, Utah, to share key decisions they are making about market consolidation, attracting physicians and clinicians, winning at risk, connecting with consumers, and competing with retailers.
