2019 Leavitt Partners Annual Strategy Conference

August 1 - 2, 2019
The Westin Michigan Avenue  |  Chicago, IL

Join Governor Leavitt, Ian Morrison and other thought leaders in Chicago for the LP Annual Strategy conference, brought to you by Health Intelligence Partners.

We are all on this journey to value, each of us charting a different path, starting in a different place, aiming for a different destination, but all moving. To chart a successful path, you must identify the conditions and obstacles you face, and then explore the right strategies to get there faster:

Aligned Incentives  •  Vision & Planning  •  Culture Change  •  Willingness  •  Data Interoperability  •  Leadership & Innovation

This conference will provide you with a strategic framework, key information & perspectives and a collective
imperative to move with purpose along your path to value.



PRE-CONFERENCE SESSION with Leavitt Partners Insight (optional): 

(SEATS ARE NOW FILLED) Health care markets are almost as unique as the people that live in them, with no two markets the same. How do companies assess markets, both current and potential? What is the best way to understand the potential for expansion into a new market or growth into unknown territory? This optional master class will bring you together with two experts on market analysis and a template & methodology needed to best understand a health care market. With laptop in hand, participants will walk away with a much better understanding of how to ask for the right information to chart a path towards growth. Seats are limited, so register early and reserve your spot.
