Thought Leaders

Ceci Connolly, a nationally-recognized healthcare leader, is president and CEO of the Alliance of Community Health Plans. Previously, Ceci Connolly was the Managing Director of the Health Research Institute for PriceWaterhouseCoopers after having spent 25 years in the journalism field and is a well-respected author and TV commentator. As the Washington Post's former chief health correspondent, she chronicled President Obama's drive for sweeping healthcare reform. Connolly is co-author of LANDMARK: The Inside Story of America's New Health Care Law and What It Means for Us All.

In her current role, she works with some of the most innovative executives in the health sector to provide high-quality, affordable care to all. She is a leading thinker in the disruptive forces reshaping our health system and has been a trusted adviser to c-suite executives. Well-versed in a variety of areas pertinent to business today, she is an expert on communications, leadership coaching, crisis management, and the Washington regulatory process.

A highly sought-after speaker, Connolly has the unique ability to translate complex subjects for audiences at all levels. Her breadth of experience as a healthcare adviser and as a political reporter both here and abroad enables her to speak authoritatively on a range of subjects including politics, health care, journalism, and what it takes to be a successful woman in the male-dominated worlds of Washington and Latin America.

She is the first non-physician to receive the prestigious Mayo Clinic Plummer Society award for promoting a deeper understanding of science and medicine and is a founding member of Women of Impact (WOI) for Healthcare.

Landmark: The Inside Story of America's New Health Care Law

Based on the book, Landmark, which Connolly co-authored as a member of the Washington Post national reporting staff, Connolly takes an in-depth look at President Obama's transformative healthcare law, emphasizing how the legislation will have a lasting effect on our society.

 

The Future of Health Care is Now

Technological advances, discerning consumers and innovative entrepreneurs are upending America’s $3 trillion health industry. Care is now available with the swipe of a finger on any mobile device. Connolly analyzes the latest trends hitting health care and what they mean for consumers, businesses and the industry itself.
