Healthcare Reform and Leading Provider Strategies

Date & Time: Wednesday, May 27, 2015 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Unparalleled public and private healthcare reform is underway to address the unsustainability of the U.S. healthcare economy. This reform will usher in a new economy that rewards quality, efficiency and collaboration. Without an urgent and practical response, providers throughout the country will face declining revenue attributed to payers like Medicare, which continue to push value-based reimbursement models.

This presentation and panel discussion will address the mandatory reform elements influencing healthcare providers’ reimbursement and how these elements impact employee productivity. Panelists from all three of the Academic Medical Centers in the region will discuss how these reform elements will transform the way they deliver care and measure quality outcomes.
