"What an honor and privilege it was to moderate this discussion with these industry icons who explored the major forces driving radical change in the health ecosystem, the mandate for health equity, the flood of private equity into health care, and the influx of AI and digital transformation. It was inspiring to hear our panelists share their experiences leading collaborative change and working with the great minds in our audience to translate those insights and experiences into actionable leadership dimensions," said Tracy Duberman, CEO of The Leadership Development Group.

"Thank you to the AHA and TLD Group for bringing together this panel to discuss such an important topic. The courage and collaborative innovation of leaders and health systems will define the ability to survive and thrive in the next iteration of health care delivery. More importantly it is our responsibility to work together to solve some of the toughest problems in inequity, inhumanity, and access in the health care world," said Chinni Pulluru, MD, Vice President, Clinical Operations, Walmart Health Omnichannel Care.

Phoebe L. Yang, JD, General Manager, Amazon Web Services, Healthcare added, "It was a pleasure to dive deep and "get real" with some of healthcare's most important leaders to break down the challenges to true healthcare transformation. I enjoyed convening with the group to address how different players in the industry can collaborate in radically different ways to achieve the affordable, accessible, equitable, and excellent care we all want and know we need."

The participants of the intensive will receive a summary report and leadership success profile for the radically new health ecosystem leader along with strategies for using the profile to advance, develop, retain, and attract high potential talent for the future.
