HPN meetings explore the biggest trends affecting non-physician health professionals and the associations, school programs & credentialing bodies that support themIndustry and employer-led initiatives will rapidly have a drastic affect on how non-physician professionals are educated, trained, regulated and compensated. Learn how they will affect YOU and YOUR ORGANIZATION.


Who employs the thought-leaders who will shape the future of health care and health professions? The Mayo Clinic? Or Amazon? Walmart?

Amazon, JP Morgan and Berkshire Hathaway have made waves with their joint venture aimed at improving care and cutting costs for their 1.2 million combined workforce. Walmart, which alone employs 1.5 million, is also a player to watch. What these huge corporations do could change health care drastically for the 150 million U.S. individuals insured through their employers. Employer-led initiatives will inevitably and significantly affect how health professionals are educated, trained, regulated and compensated.

Health Professions Network meetings regularly convene regional experts and industry leaders to present quality educational sessions on topics at the forefront of the rapid change in health care.

Our theme, INDUSTRY IMPACT ON HEALTHCARE & HEALTH STAFFING will tackle the latest developments and projects from employers—many of which project to have a profound impact on health care service delivery and health professions. We’ll hear from large employers—like Walmart, Amazon, or Berkshire Hathaway—about how they’re approaching insurance and health care for their employees. We’ll also hear more about employer-driven collaboratives and initiatives that will change how non-physician professionals are trained and hired.

Updates and a full agenda will be available as they are finalized!

Don’t forget—you’re invited to participate, as well! In addition to our usual expert sessions, we’re asking members and guests to present for 5-15 minutes answering a conceptual or practical question and sharing practical knowledge and insight into customer service and association management, all in bite-sized pieces. Think HPN meets TED!

How do you think industry and employer-led initiatives will affect your profession, your association, or the nature of health education or professional credentialing? What new obstacles have already, or will likely present themselves, and how should they be overcome? In what ways do you see employer health care and direct contracting changing the way we work in the years ahead?

If you’re an HPN member, this is probably a topic crucial to your work—something we all need to pay attention to in order to support our health professionals.
