It's clear that what lies ahead for health care will undoubtedly involve significant directional change. The Snowbird Health Summit is an opportunity to gather some of health care's great minds to consider what the future might-or should-be and what our roles are in creating a brighter future.
Snowbird Health Summit 2017
What started as a bit of a whim to come together to share best practices and insights—and have fun skiing—now feels like something more important. I think this inaugural Snowbird Health Summit brings together some of the best minds in health care. Our plan is to build on each participant's talents and insights and the impressive innovations they've helped drive. Inspired by their remarkable successes—and fueled by crisp mountain air, spectacular Alpine scenery, and with a little luck some fresh Utah powder—my hope is that we'll have time away from the daily demands of our jobs to address some of the most critical issues in health care and contemplate what a better future looks like.
The sessions will be in a closed format so that participants can speak freely. After the Summit, however, we are eager to share what we've learned and where we're headed. We'll include a list of attendees as well as interviews, photos, and video highlights from the weekend. So please check back as we'll be rolling out content over the next couple of months.
I'm so grateful to all of the participants for turning this idea a reality and looking forward to seeing what comes of this gathering.
