It's clear that what lies ahead for health care will undoubtedly involve significant directional change. The Snowbird Health Summit is an opportunity to gather some of health care's great minds to consider what the future might-or should-be and what our roles are in creating a brighter future.

Snowbird Health Summit 2017

Snowbird Ski Resort, Utah
February 16-19, 2018

What started as a bit of a whim to come together to share best practices and insights—and have fun skiing—became a most memorable and informative inaugural Snowbird Health Summit last year. Health care professionals from a wide range of backgrounds who share a commitment to improving health through health care system innovation and redesign learned from each other. Inspired by the talent and warmth of the attendees—and fueled by crisp mountain air, spectacular Alpine scenery, and some fresh Utah powder—our time away from the daily demands of our jobs could inspire the big ideas needed to tackle big problems.

This year we gather again, welcome some new friends, and look forward to the chance to collaborate to address some of the most critical issues in health care and contemplate what a better future looks like.

The sessions will again be in a closed format so that participants can speak freely. After the Summit, however, we are eager to share what we've learned and where we're headed. We'll include a list of attendees as well as interviews, photos, and video highlights from the weekend. So please check back as we'll be rolling out content over the next couple of months.

Thank you all for your encouragement to host this gathering again. Here’s to Snowbird Health Summit, take two.
