Below are examples of the benefits our members perceive as important:
The opportunity to acquire new knowledge from others
I just get knowledge that I didn’t otherwise have and I get a chance to share knowledge with people who are interested in what I’ve got to say about our experiences at Kaiser Permanente.
Murray Ross, VP of the Institute of Health Policy, Kaiser Permanente
Out-of-the-box thinking and gaining a different perspective
This kind of conversation sparks all of our imaginations. It allows us to get out of our box, as we like to say. And still recognizing, yes I have this problem, but now I have a different way of thinking about it.
Bruce Fried, Managing Partner Dentons LLP, former Head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
Drawing the big picture and developing contextual sensitivity
More than anything there are takeaways that begin to broaden our thinking and my thinking to recognize that we can think somewhat more broadly how we begin to engage activities and societies into the healthcare field, specifically how to evolve our business to be a little bit more sensitive to the 21st century.
Frank Maddux, CMO, Fresenius Medical Care North America
Sharpening and widening analytical toolsets
Here you acquire and sharpen your analytical tools to pursue questions what is really workable. You get a larger and more effective and more sharpened and polished set of analytical tools.
Lawrence Brown, Professor Columbia University
The opportunity to listen and to share
You get a chance to be around the table, share information, hear from everybody and it’s this wonderful opportunity to learn from others and compare notes and not be spoken to but to listen and share.
Walter Kopp, President Medical Management Services USA
