Distinguished surgeon, teacher, and writer Atul Gawande, MD, will be the keynote speaker on Monday, June 23, at ANI: The 2014 HFMA National Institute in Las Vegas.
Gawande will address clinical transformation in an era of healthcare reform, emphasizing the delicate balance between improving quality, managing risk, measuring performance, and managing cost.

Gawande is a General and Endocrine Surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and a staff writer The New Yorker magazine. He is also Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard School of Public Health, and Research Director for the BWH Center for Surgery and Public Health.

He received his BAS from Stanford University, an M.A. (in politics, philosophy, and economics) from Oxford University, his MD from Harvard Medical School, and his MPH from the Harvard School of Public Health. Gawande served as a senior health policy advisor in the Clinton presidential campaign and in the Clinton White House from 1992 to 1993.

In 2006, Gawande received the MacArthur Award for his research and writing. He is the author of three brilliant bestselling books: Complications, a finalist for the National Book Award in 2002; Better: A Surgeon’s Notes on Performance, a New York Times bestseller and one of Amazon.com’s ten best books of 2007; and The Checklist Manifesto, also a New York Times bestseller.

Daniel H. Pink, known for changing the world of work, will kick off ANI: The 2014 HFMA National Institute on June 22 in Las Vegas.
According to Pink, healthcare leaders at every level today confront two stark realities. First, in these fiercely competitive and endlessly turbulent times, they must do more with less. Second, the old-school management techniques they have long relied on to produce results frequently fail. Bestselling author Pink will offer a fresh look at how all leaders must enhance their skills in persuading, influencing, and motivating others. He will describe three specific personal traits and identify specific skills that will improve professional effectiveness.
Pink is the author of five provocative books about the changing world of work, including the long-time New York Times bestseller A Whole New Mind and the number-one New York Times bestseller Drive.
His latest book, To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others, is a new perspective on the art and science of selling. Pink draws on a rich trove of social science for his counterintuitive insights. He reveals the new ABCs of moving others (it’s no longer “Always Be Closing”), explains why extroverts don’t make the best salespeople, and shows how giving people an “off-ramp” for their actions can matter more than actually changing their minds.
Pink’s articles on business and technology have appeared in many publications, including The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, The Sunday Telegraph, Fast Company and Wired. He has provided analysis of business trends on CNN, CNBC, ABC, NPR and other networks in the U.S. and abroad. He also advises both Fortune 100 companies and startups on recruiting, innovation and work practices.
A free agent himself, he held his last real job in the White House, where he served from 1995 to 1997 as chief speechwriter for Vice President Al Gore. He also worked as an aide to U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich and in other positions in politics and government.
He received a BA from Northwestern University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and a JD from Yale Law School.
