Health Profession Associations – State of the Industry Report

The Current State of Change

The Health Professions Network's 2017 Chicago Association Summit convened executives and representatives from professional organizations of non-physician health professions to discuss the challenges facing associations and the health care industry.

Via teleconference, Greg Morrison of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists led the group in a fascinating look at the grand scale of what change in both the association and the health care industry may bring to its organizations and professionals.

The group continued the discussion by sharing outlooks—the trends and challenges groups are monitoring and facing, as well as outlining potential collaborative solutions to these shared challenges. Common themes, topics and solutions shaped this report.

  • the opportunities groups can tackle
  • the challenges we’re all facing
