About the HCL Conference
The Healthcare Leaders Conference brings together 150 of the most successful venture capital and private equity investors and CEO’s from the healthcare services and health information technology sectors. A great kick-off to the post summer business year, the Healthcare Leaders Conference brings together old friends, colleagues and competitors with those on the cutting edge pursuing the next new thing in healthcare services and HIT.
The best 24 hours in healthcare…the Conference is purpose-built to allow a surgical strike for those attending. Arrive in time for golf or tennis on Wednesday afternoon or relax in the Resort’s 5-star spa; enjoy a poolside networking cocktail hour and dinner; then an early start Thursday morning with five hours of the best and brightest sharing their experience, perspective and vision for where the healthcare business is; its challenges and opportunities and where it is going.
Our roster of speakers and panelists over the years represents a who’s who from across the healthcare landscape; thought leaders and agents of change who in our intimate setting are uniquely accessible to our attendees.

Ian Adler Memorial Innovator Award
The Ian Adler Memorial Healthcare Innovator Award gives our attendees, hosts and sponsors an opportunity to recognize outstanding operating executives, who as Chief Executive Officers have made a dramatic impact on the success of their individual companies in terms of value creation; the implementation of sector-shaping business models and innovative business practices; culture and team-building; and their individual/organizational impact on the overall healthcare scene.
In nominating and selecting awardees, we have a strong bias for leaders who have achieved these goals within the context of the emerging growth arena, and whose entire body of work across a career in relevant settings can be recognized by our Conference. The healthcare segments represented in a nominee’s background include healthcare services, managed care, and health information.
