Healthcare Executive Rank Top 10 Healthcare Issues for 2019

After more than two days of thought leadership discussions during its 30th Anniversary Annual Forum, executive participants of the HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG) voted on and ranked the 2019 HCEG Top 10 critical challenges, issues and opportunities they expect to face in their organizations in the coming year.

Executives from payer, provider and technology partner organizations were presented with a list of more than 25 topics selected by the HCEG Board of Directors and other thought leaders. The list was augmented by the 2018 Industry Pulse Survey. Roundtable discussions hosted during the Forum amongst the more than 100 attendees and invited industry experts allowed the topics to be explored and expounded upon, prior to a digital ranking that culminated in the 2019 HCEG Top 10.

2019 HCEG Top 10 Challenges, Issues and Opportunities

“Selecting and ranking healthcare issues is always a challenge as we are in a very critical and dynamic stage in healthcare,” said Ferris W. Taylor, executive director of HCEG. “?Everything seems important. Particularly, issue #11 — healthcare policy reform — and issue #12 — precision/personalized medicine?. More than a handful of HCEG members were surprised that these topics did not make the Top 10. HCEG plans to further explore the reasoning through facilitated discussions at upcoming events and within the HCEG digital community. It’s a compliment to the HCEG members that we reached an agreement on these 10 critical and actionable issues.”

2019 HCEG Top 10 as Basis for Additional Research and Discussion

After its initial delineation during HCEG’s Annual Forum, the HCEG Top 10 serves as the basis for ongoing discussion, industry-wide analysis and in-depth research performed by sponsor partners, member organizations and industry researchers throughout the coming year. The HCEG Top 10 will be complemented by the 9th annual, nationwide, Industry Pulse Survey. Healthcare leaders across the nation will be invited to participate in the research over the next few months to backdrop and contrast their own perspectives against the 2019 HCEG Top 10.
