The Healthcare Leadership Council (HLC), a coalition of chief executives representing all sectors of American healthcare, formed the National Dialogue for Healthcare Innovation (NDHI) in 2010 as an interactive forum for leaders from government, academia, industry, payers, providers, societies, and patient and consumer organizations to engage in constructive dialogue aimed at building better understanding and consensus around critical issues affecting healthcare innovation, and, ultimately, patient care.
NDHI’s inaugural event, the NDHI Summit on Physician-Industry Collaboration, was held on October 4 in Washington, D.C. The meeting represented one of the first cross-disciplinary cooperative dialogues among leaders from stakeholder groups across the U.S. healthcare ecosystem.
At the Summit, 107 high-level representatives from key stakeholder organizations attended the day-long event, focusing on identifying areas of consensus and alignment, as well as raising divergent viewpoints and key issues surrounding physician-industry collaboration. More
