5. With Lauren's team and the help of Chuck Lauer and Rhoda Weiss, we have largely completed the agenda for next year's annual meeting. The meeting will include more than 160 hosital and health system speakers, as well as a former U.S. president, and great moderators and CEOs. The meeting is again co-chaired by Chuck Lauer and Rhoda Weiss. The meeting focuses on CEOs, CFOs, health IT and quality. This year we've added a thought leaders and revenue cycle track. As in past years, we have population health, ACOs, strategy and affiliation tracks.

We are right now working to complete the revenue cycle track. Here we give preference to talks that include health system and hospital leaders. If you would like to suggest a talk or speaker, please email Lauren Groeper at and Scott Becker at We seek interesting, insightful and practical talks. Almost all sessions are 40 minutes. Thank you very much.
