November Forum on Consumerism & Transparency Examines Power of Consumer in Healthcare

The Governance Institute Hosts Forum Focusing on the Transformative Power of Data in Consumers' Hands, and How It Is Disrupting the Traditional Status Quo in Healthcare

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - October 14, 2016) - The Governance Institute, a service of National Research Corporation, is bringing together healthcare systems from across the nation to connect with some of the most pivotal players in and out of healthcare, during an exciting three-day forum, November 13-15, 2016. The event will be held at The Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island, Florida and will give health system executives and board members practical advice to accelerate innovation and disruptive change within their own organizations.

The keynote will be delivered by The New York Times best-selling author, Charles Duhigg, whose work on the "iEconomy" won him the Pulitzer Prize in 2013. His book, and a focus of his address, The Power of Habit: Why We do What We Do in Life and Business, has spent over a year on The New York Times bestseller list.

Zach Griffin, General Manager of The Governance Institute, said this one-of-its-kind forum is built upon a need for healthcare leaders to focus on two of the most important forces shaping healthcare today -- consumerism and transparency. "Our forum will examine these disruptive forces, both as they are now playing out in healthcare, and how they have already played out in other industries," Griffin said. "We want our attendees to leave with an understanding of how to best position their systems -- not simply respond to consumer-led disruptions, but to get ahead of them."

The conference agenda is built upon The Governance Institute's 2016 Education Agenda, which includes the following learning objectives: Expanding Quality Oversight to Value-Based Care Settings, Advancing Population Health with Targeted Metrics, Building Strategic Alliances across the Continuum, Consumer Strategy: Connecting and Responding to Consumer Needs, and Innovation & Disruption: The Expanding Role of Non-Traditional Providers.
