Prospering in a Post Reform World
Director, Health Research Institute
Thursday, Nov. 11, 12-1 p.m., Shriner’s Hospital Auditorium, 7th Floor
Lunch Served beginning at 11:30 a.m.
Abstract: To prosper in the post-reform world, health executives will need to reassess current strategies and find ways to work together. The report illustrates the mega trends that each sector (provider, payer, and pharmaceutical and life sciences) will face as a result of health reform, the provisions in the law that are driving them, and recommendations on how organizations can turn these challenges into new opportunities. Most importantly, reform has opened the door for the industries to work together to achieve change. For example, with changes to their reimbursement structures, providers need to partner with payers and the pharmaceutical sector to share data, increase patient adherence and improve quality and outcomes.
Please plan to arrive by 11:30 a.m. to enjoy your lunch prior to entering the Shriner’s Auditorium.
