The article analyzes the leadership challenges facing the healthcare industry based on the annual 2011 Health Leaders Media Industry Survey. Results showed that 75% of respondents are positive about the current state of their organization while only 23% believe the healthcare industry is on the right direction. Dr. Mark Laney of Heartland Health commented that leaders are passive about health reform and that most of them being neutral about the accountable care organizations (ACOs) is frustrating.
