Healthcare Collaborative

About the Association Forum Healthcare Collaborative

Chicago represents the largest geographic concentration of healthcare professional organizations in the United States, most of whom are members and active in Association Forum. Chicago is also home to many of this nation's premier universities, hospitals, payers, patient organizations, innovators, and think tanks. With this critical mass, we believe we have the opportunity, indeed the responsibility, to convene our healthcare community, to help transcend industry segments and facilitate collaborative solutions to the pressing challenges we all face
