Keynote Speaker

Dr. Paul Keckley

Paul understands that healthcare is going through a gut check and that the volume and velocity of change is unprecedented. Paul is a scholar of that change, diving deep into the data to bring our members the unvarnished truth. He’s a believer that the right conversations can result in a healthcare system that is healthily balanced in both profit and purpose. He helps pressure test strategy, anticipate public reaction, find the opportunities in the change, and improve your odds of success. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to hear Paul share his thoughts on healthcare reform, consumerism in healthcare, industry restructuring and mega-trends impacting the US healthcare industry.
