April 24-27, 2013 - The Academy CMO Forum

Royal Palms Resort
Phoenix, AZ

The Academy implements its strategy with member-driven executive study groups, benchmarking studies, fellowship programs, publications, and conferences organized around Forums of health system executives with similar roles.

The Chief Medical Officers (CMO) of the largest health systems are distinguished medical leaders and they are among the most influential medical leaders in the nation. The CMO represents the health system to the physician community and provides leadership in aligning and integrating physicians with the health system. The CMO’s role is dynamic and as the provision of health and medical care evolves, the CMO’s role may include guiding quality and patient safety initiatives, reengineering patient care services, employing evidence-based policies in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and coordinating relations between academic and community-based physicians.
