AHA Leadership Summit

The 2019 AHA Leadership Summit promotes a revolution in thinking among health care leaders that reflects a steady wave of disruptive strategies and unexpected solutions for future success.

Focusing on transformational strategies and approaches for achieving financial sustainability while delivering greater value through operational excellence, creative partnerships, and redefined delivery models, the Summit convenes the field’s leading thinkers and doers – as well as those innovators who are shifting traditional business models.


Senior hospital and health system leaders and clinicians will make meaningful connections with others in the expanding health care ecosystem to foster collaboration and innovation.

Trustees will expand their understanding of emerging governance models. Next generation health care leaders will gain insights into the competencies required to lead complex organizations. Learn from new market entrants and entrepreneurs investing in the promising ideas, technologies and scientific discoveries that are changing the consumer experience and innovating care delivery.


Engage with colleagues in a variety of new experiential educational opportunities that facilitate the sharing of insights and leading practices, and which accelerate the adoption of new approaches.

Choose your preferred learning format from among inspirational keynotes, practical tool-based workshops and intensive sessions, deep-dive case studies, panels and Fireside Chats, interactive peer roundtables, and fast-paced Ignite sessions. Come prepared to share your expertise and design solutions with your peers during three action-packed days.
