SHSMD and AHA’s Center for Health Innovation will convene health care leaders and executives across the nation for an innovative and engaging 3-day virtual event Navigating A New Reality – Health Care Leaders Confront the Future. This one of a kind virtual conference will connect an array of key leaders facing a new era of care delivery post-COVID-19. We urge SHSMD executive strategists to join other health care leaders to share ideas, lessons learned, and innovative strategies to move the field from recovery to rebuilding. Mark your calendars for September 14-16.
The Society for Health Care Strategy & Market Development (SHSMD) of the American Hospital Association (AHA) will be transitioning its 2020 in-person annual conference originally scheduled for September 13-16 in Chicago to a new virtual conference plus additional online education opportunities.
This October 26-28, SHSMD will offer all its members additional opportunities to join a series of online workshops, seminars and social networking opportunities as we bring our greatest SHSMD Connections sessions and more to marketers, planners, communicators, business developers and other health care strategists.
AHA is committed to providing the important advocacy information necessary for the health care field. Please look for opportunities from AHA to receive information both virtually and at future in-person meetings. Thank you for your leadership and please find the latest COVID-19 updates and resources from SHSMD here and from the AHA here.

The in-person 2020 SHSMD Connections conference in Chicago has officially been cancelled by the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Society for Health Care Strategy & Market Development (SHSMD) in light of the latest COVID-19 developments, CDC guidelines, and other federal, state and local requirements. During this unprecedented time, we support Illinois’ phased reopening which does not allow large events and we understand that many hospital and health system professionals must remain available to their organizations locally.
