Since 1998, The Academy has cultivated the premier community of influential changemakers in healthcare. Our members are aligned around a common goal of improving health for all, and a core belief that partnership will accelerate progress.
We power our members by building our community and fostering connections through executive peer learning. We support professional growth through talent and development. We accelerate understanding by delivering timely and actionable data and insights on key challenges. And we catalyze transformation by building alliances in areas where the power of the collective is greater than the power of one.
We welcome members from the approximately 150 Leading Health Systems with over $2B in total operating revenue.
Our programs engage only CXOs and the most senior healthcare leaders.
We create a trusted space for meaningful discourse, where members drive the conversation.
We believe the most productive partnerships occur when members rise above commerce and develop deep understanding and connection.
As hospitals consolidated into large health systems, leaders asked for support to navigate the new complexity of their business.
In response, The Academy was established in 1998, first to support Chief Medical Officers. From there, we quickly expanded to more peer groups spanning the c-suite.
The Academy expanded membership to include innovative industry partners, whose engagement was essential for driving meaningful progress.
Our community and impact now include 25 peer groups, 6 leadership development programs, an extensive research platform, offerings for business strategy and workforce, and 3 targeted alliances for policy, health equity, and co-investments.
