Each year the Women Business Leaders of the U.S. Health Care Industry Foundation™, WBL for short, sponsors great opportunities for women serving in a senior executive capacity in the U.S. healthcare industry. This month, I’ll be racking up more frequent flyer miles as I head to Las Vegas for the 2012 WBL Summit on March 14 to 16. This year’s theme is “Ahead of the Curve: Leading Industry Change.” You can learn more about the conference agenda here.
There’s no denying that the healthcare industry is rapidly changing, creating some degree of uncertainty among payers, providers, and patients. The 2012 WBL Summit offers senior executives a chance to network and discuss how they can be part of the solution. I’m looking forward to learning more about implementing change and developing strategic alliances. If you’re going to be at the conference, I hope we can connect.
I’ll also be blogging periodically throughout the Summit to inform our readers about the issues that are concerning hospital executives in 2012. Check back frequently to read these updates.
