Ryan Donohue, Corporate Director of Program Development at National Research and frequent presenter for The Governance Institute, will open the conference with his keynote topic, "Building Customer Engagement through Innovative Strategies."

"Healthcare consumers are becoming more educated, savvy consumers who expect a certain standard of care," Donohue said. "It's the job of healthcare leadership to make sure these consumers are not only receiving this standard—but exceeding it. This comes from the root understanding that consumers must be engaged with their providers and trust them."

Other renowned presenters include James Reinertsen, M.D, Chair of The Reinertsen Group, and Lisa Goldstein, Associate Managing Director of Healthcare Ratings Moody's Investors Service.

The conference agenda is built upon The Governance Institute's 2015 Education Agenda, which includes the following learning objectives: Intentional Governance Across the Continuum; Leadership Accountability During Times of Change; Effective Engagement of Clinicians in Leadership; Transforming Care Delivery through Health IT; and Health System & Provider Evolution.
