Leadership and Innovation Unite

Change is constant in health care, whether it’s an innovative treatment, new financing constraints, or a growing focus on the health of populations. The leaders who have to manage those changes need special skills so they can adapt and help their organizations pivot to what’s next. 

Ask yourself these questions:
  • Are you defining your future or are you reacting to it?
  • Does your orga
    nization have a viable model to succeed in the current health care environment?
  • Does your leadership team have a shared purpose and a common game plan?
  • Do you have a reliable system to develop and execute innovative ideas?
  • Does your team consistently align your innovation work with your strategic priorities?
  • Are you preparing a multigenerational workforce that is ready for the future?
  • Are you developing and mentoring your emerging leaders?
This coming spring, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) is convening leaders from health systems, hospitals, health insurance plans, and government agencies to make sure you can answer “yes” to all of these questions.
Join us at the 2016 IHI Change Conference in Dallas, Texas, on March 10–11, 2016. We’re taking the lessons from the first two years of the IHI Leadership Alliance, IHI’s High-Impact Leadership framework, and IHI’s disciplined process for innovation, and distilling them down to their essential elements to share with you over the course of two days. Prominent voices in health care who have perspectives on what has worked — and what has failed — will offer insights about how to be prepared for what’s around the next turn.

The designers of the Change Conference have created an intensive agenda with high-level plenaries, TED Talk-style keynotes, and groups of breakout sessions that have been created for board members, C-suite executives, clinical leaders, innovators, and change agents. Uniquely, the Change Conference provides an environment in which you can learn with your colleagues and with other high-performing leaders and leadership teams.
The vision for the Change Conference is that:
1. All teach
2. All learn
3. All lead
During the conference, you’ll learn new mental models and new approaches with your team. You’ll be able to share with each other what you’ve each taken away from the unique breakouts, so you can solidify the design of new initiatives together, and you’ll bring home new leadership tools that will help you make an immediate impact at your organization.


  • Adopt key leadership assets that will drive high performance in your organization
  • Learn how to build a more effective and integrated leadership team
  • Design and begin to execute a reliable system and structure for innovation
  • Select tools and techniques to increase agility and the pace of needed changes

You will experience highly interactive sessions with experts who are on the cutting edge of this exciting time in health care transformation. Experienced faculty will share what they’ve learned about improving patient experience, reducing costs of care, and population health management. This program will equip you with the necessary tools and knowledge to take your leadership system to a higher level.


This conference is ideal for teams of leaders from the same organization. We offer specific tracks for:
  • Board members
  • C-suite executives
  • Clinical leaders and directors
  • Innovation leaders and senior change agents
  • Emerging leaders and managers
Individual attendees will have the opportunity to network with and learn from colleagues from similar organizations, those with common challenges, and those who have found creative solutions.
