2016 Annual Alumni Conference

2016 Annual WHCMAA Alumni Conference


"The Value Ripple Effect"

Join us for a remarkable day of dialogue and networking that will include noteworthy speakers from across the industry.


Friday, October 21, 2016
7:30am – 5:30pm


The 2016 WHCMAA Conference will examine the causes and consequences of the push for value that is rippling its way through the health care system.  Attendees will hear purchasers, payers, providers, and suppliers discuss how they and their adjacent stakeholders are testing out new arrangements that reward value, not volume.  Experts will detail “What’s different this time?” that will make system transformation sustainable.  And entrepreneurs will describe how they are pivoting to succeed in a value-driven market.

The conference is a unique opportunity to convene and discuss critical issues with senior healthcare industry executives and thought leaders in an intimate setting.

  • $325 Pre-Labor Day rate for WHCMAA Members; $425 for Non-Members
  • $400 Post-Labor Day rate for WHCMAA members; $500 for Non-Members
