2017 Annual Conference

Monday, November 13 - Wednesday, November 15, 2017

In its 24th year, the Annual Conference is the premier event for the National Alliance. Each year, it hosts thought leaders, policymakers and key healthcare experts from across the country to share their insights and expertise on the emerging trends, innovations and opportunities in the changing healthcare marketplace.

The conference highlights National Alliance’s position as a national thought leader in business performance, health, wellbeing and value-based approaches in healthcare. We are a leading educator for business coalitions and public and private health care purchasers and provide several educational and networking opportunities throughout the year.

Each year, this event brings employers of all sizes and industries together to learn from one another, network with other healthcare stakeholders and to learn about effective approaches to managing the health and wellbeing of their workforce from the leading innovators in healthcare and business.

This 3-day event provide learning opportunities through interactive sessions, educational discussions, employer roundtables, demonstrations and exhibit floor events that all encourage networking sharing and learning. This year’s topics include innovative approaches and strategies to wellbeing, population health, employee empowerment, special sessions on healthcare policy and updates on the AHCA along with other emerging healthcare topics.

A special thanks to our 2016 Sponsors and Exhibitors!
