From Competition to Collaboration: Building Cross-Sector Partnerships to Drive Value and Transform Health

Tuesday, August 25th, 2020
11:00-11:50 am EST

Problems facing health care are too complex for any one sector to solve independently. As such, health care organizations across the ecosystem are realizing the impact of cross-sector partnerships and starting to develop those collaborations. These efforts are focused on building the organizational alignment and capabilities to work across organizations. However, building these solutions creates unique leadership challenges, as different health care sectors also hold varying interests and perspectives. Leaders will need to master these challenges to effectively sustain these cross-sector efforts as health care moves toward improved population health. This session addresses the importance of cross-sector collaboration in health care across the payer, provider, and pharmaceutical industries. The panel of health leaders will discuss how they have moved through challenges to create collaborative solutions by partnering with leaders from outside of their sector. Explore how the different sectors have the potential to deliver higher quality value by working as an “ecosystem.”
