11. Speakers Sought - Becker's Hospital Review Annual Meeting (May 17-18, 2012). We are down to the final speaking spots for the Annual Meeting agenda to be held next May. With the terrific help of Chuck Lauer, the co-chair of the conference, we expect to have many great CEOs as speakers. The conference should provide a great sense of the issues facing healthcare leaders.   We are seeking speakers and topics to strengthen the agenda in the following areas and looking for suggestions:

A. The current use of PHOs and ACOs. On ACOs, we have a terrific panel. We need two additional speakers from health systems to round out the panel. We would also like to add a panel on best practices for PHOs with real world stories of successful PHOs.

B. The agenda is CEO and CFO centric. We are seeking one to two more subjects focused very specifically on CFOs and CMOs.

If you have suggestions, please contact Scott Becker at
