The Health Industry Forum was established to bring together a diverse group of leaders from across the healthcare field to develop solutions for critical problems facing the healthcare system. Our members include many of the nation's leading health plans, health systems, pharmaceutical manufacturers, employers, and academic medical centers. Meet the Health Industry Forum Advisory Board.

Our mission is to develop practical, actionable, market-oriented strategies to improve the quality and value of the U.S. healthcare system. To support this mission, the Forum sponsors independent, objective  policy analysis and provides a range of neutral venues where healthcare leaders and other stakeholders work together to develop strategies and solutions.

Our research is focused on informing organizations about strategies to improve the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of the health care system. The Forum administers a research fund and occasionally sponsors research to support innovative health care policy and practice.

Forum meetings are small leadership conferences convened to focus on innovative strategies for improving the quality and effectiveness of health care.

If you are interested in joining the Health Industry Forum, please contact us.
