HIP Membership Overview

Member Portal

Health Intelligence Partners (HIP) is an intelligence community providing relevant political, policy, and market insights, cross-stakeholder dialogue on key issues, and strategic guidance to help organizations navigate the changing health care economy. Participants use these insights for strategic planning, environmental monitoring, and market intelligence. Those that benefit most from HIP perform the following types of roles within their organization:

  • C-Suite Executives & Strategic Planners
  • Product Development and Innovation
  • Market or Business Intelligence

Why We're Different

HIP brings together strategic planners and executives from across health care – providers, payers, pharma, digital technology, health care IT, devices, and policy influencers – to better understand our future. HIP insights come from a combination of savvy advisors and survey data, and are delivered via three main formats:

  • Perspectives: Regular analysis and commentary around major developments, providing thought leadership on key industry trends and events.
  • Engagements: Strategic discussions analyzing key trends, mapping-out future scenarios, and identifying key tools for navigating uncertainty.
  • Strategic Insights: Deep dive into issues and sector dynamics with Leavitt Partners practice leaders & researchers providing insights on what matters most.

Health Intelligence Partners Programming

HIP programming explores solutions to the most pressing questions that make up the Health Care Challenge.

The Health Care Challenge

  • How will we prevent disease, and enable those with conditions to maximize health?
  • How will we improve access to quality insurance that appropriately manages risk?
  • How will we ensure a fair distribution of costs across payers (individual, employer, government)?
  • How will we improve our ability to achieve quality outcomes at lower costs?

2018 HIP Agenda

State-based insurance innovation to improve value: States are being given more authority to design insurance solutions, so what are they trying and how is it working?

Engaging private sector stakeholders in value: Public payers are easing their foot on the gas of value payment, but are private payers ready to step into the void?

Improving health, from prevention to management: As health costs rise, can stakeholders develop an ROI for prevention?

Technology as a cost saver, quality enabler: As technology pushes into new frontiers, how do regulators and payers set rules of engagement to maximize outcomes?
