The Managed Care Executive Group (MCEG), now the HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG) is a national organization that provides a forum for the open exchange of information, innovative ideas, and experience among technical and business leaders in healthcare. MCEG was formed in 1988 and uniquely serves as a community of executives who act as resources to each other throughout the year in navigating the tactical and strategic issues. Attendance at the annual forum is limited to 80 healthcare executives and senior managers. This intimate gathering fosters open and honest discussion and the building of enduring relationships. The Annual Forum includes panel discussions, keynote speakers and valuable networking opportunities. HCEG is supported by a small group of select vendors - unlike most industry events, the annual forum does not include an exhibit hall. The purpose of HCEG is to create a comfortable forum for the exchange of ideas, the development of valuable peer relationships and the opportunity to explore the innovation that will transform organizations and the industry.
