SI 2021 Fall Symposium – Cracking the Code: Healthcare 2025

November 16, 2021 - November 19, 2021

Trying to “crack the code” for healthcare’s future? Our 2021 Fall Symposium offers the blueprints for success!
The future of primary care. The need for clinical innovation. The role of public health. DEI. AI. High-tech disruptors. Economic recovery.

The new data-driven, real-time system of health has multiple moving parts: How are you assembling them to fit your organization’s vision for the future? Find out how like-minded peer experts shared and compared at the Fall Symposium in Scottsdale, Arizona. Video, audio and presentation PDFs from the Symposium are available to all SI members.

or create a profile to watch videos.

We couldn’t wait another year to see you, so we’re meeting face-to-face this fall for in-person panel conversations about operationalizing a data-driven, real-time system of health. Together we’ll examine the most critical moving pieces:

Solving for public health and equity

Economics that reward “health” vs. “care”

High-reliability data and predictive analytics

Innovative virtual care model

Face-to-Face, Mission-to-Mission

SI’s Fall Symposium covers myriad topics: clinical, consumer, innovation, healthcare policy, partnerships and, of course, SI’s hallmark CEO Panel featuring Nancy Howell Agee, Carilion Clinic, JP Gallagher, NorthShore University Health System, Tina Freese Decker, Spectrum Health and David Entwistle, Stanford Medicine. But most important, it’s a wonderful opportunity to greet colleagues in person, share the experiences and hard-won lessons of the past 18 months and map our futures together. SI is unique in the industry for facilitating healthcare networking, collaboration and education via social, intimate settings, and this gathering likewise affords Members personal access to key speakers, panelists, industry experts and CEOs.

Who Should Attend

This invitation-only conference is an interactive experience for SI Member executives. SI conferences are intimate sessions, designed for C-Suite executives (management, information and security, analytics, innovation, transformation, strategy, operations and finance), member officers, board members and other business and clinical executives who would benefit from peer collaboration, information sharing and networking.

Our approach is more “participation” and less “presentation,” so come prepared for relaxed, informal and highly interactive discussion with senior management teams from other leading health systems.

New Location

SI had faithfully patronized the Camelback Resort for years, but recent renovations meant we lost our beloved Peace Pipe Room… so we’re moving to the Westin Kierland in Scottsdale, just 10 miles away, to replicate that warm, intimate setting.

Reservations & Rates

Your Symposium conference fee is included your SI membership dues; however, attendees are responsible for their own hotel and travel expenses.
