United States: Strasburger Hosts Healthcare Think Tank Kick-off, Encourages Collaboration
Last Updated: October 21 2014

Strasburger, together with Elliott Connection and other core members*, recently launched the Austin Healthcare Think Tank with the goal of becoming a key resource for Central Texas' burgeoning medical corridor. The group's mission is to share trends, innovations, and best practices with its roster of lenders, developers, lawyers, accountants, administrators, policymakers, and others dedicated to serving the healthcare industry.

"The Healthcare Think Tank is a non-competitive environment designed to encourage the sharing of information vital to creating sustainable success," said Kevin Wood, Chair of Strasburger's Healthcare practice team. "The relationships developed in this group will help all participants effectively navigate our ever-changing healthcare landscape. These necessary changes may be daunting, but we can't allow them to impede forward momentum."

With a standing-room-only group of Austin business leaders, the inaugural Austin Healthcare Think Tank luncheon featured speaker Christann Vasquez, the recently appointed CEO/President of Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas. Ms. Vasquez discussed how the new teaching hospital and the Dell Medical School at UT Austin will expand the existing system's ability to serve the community for future generations.

"The Healthcare Think Tanks emphasize the importance of communication and promote a comprehensive understanding of all facets within the healthcare industry," said Linda Elliott, founder of Elliot Connection and the architect of both the Austin and San Antonio-based membership groups. "By connecting directly with those headline-grabbing decisionmakers, you become an active part of the conversation and can positively influence the course of healthcare in Texas."

*The Austin Healthcare Think Tank core members include Strasburger & Price, Carr, Riggs & Ingram, Frost Bank, Health Space Design, Medical Management Solutions, Insperity, and Avanza Healthcare Strategies.
