Regardless of the details of what happens in Washington, it is clear that health care is going to be facing sweeping changes. Our industry experts will discuss strategies to address the impact of reform including accountable care organizations (ACOs). They will outline the risks and opportunities of ACOs as well as various other proposed strategies. In addition, they will outline fundamental changes that health care providers can initiate to ensure their survival and to thrive, regardless of the outcome of health care reform.
At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Identify the fundamental changes hospitals can initiate to improve their operations and finances
- Describe the critical role of physician integration (through ACOs), cost savings, technology advances, and collaboration in health reform
- Explain how integration models can decrease costs, improve quality, and increase access in health care delivery
