In the Wake of Healthcare Reform: Policy Thought Leaders, Health-System and Health Plan Executives Meet to Discuss Strategic Issues, Opportunities and Best Practices In an Uncertain Time
MedeAnalytics-sponsored summit focuses on perspectives and initiatives for clinical integration, ACOs, value-based purchasing, hospital-physician alignment and other major topics
MONTEREY, Calif., Nov. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Uncertainty created by Washington politics, coupled with the uncharted territory inherent in significant areas of healthcare reform, have contributed to an environment today that is more challenging than ever for providers and payers. Nov. 10-11 a number of national healthcare policy thought leaders, as well as executives from some of the country's top healthcare provider and payer organizations, will gather in Monterey, Calif. to discuss a range of strategic policy options, marketplace opportunities, and practical solutions. The conference, being held at the Monterey Plaza Hotel, is sponsored by MedeAnalytics, a leading provider of healthcare performance management solutions.
"These are uncertain times for healthcare, with an unparalleled level of dynamism and billions of dollars at stake," observed Ken Perez , director of MedeAnalytics' healthcare policy team and the company's senior vice president of marketing. "Affordable Care Act-mandated healthcare delivery reforms, likely additional cuts to Medicare as a result of the Budget Control Act, and the rise of risk-based reimbursement —all portend a formidable, decade-long 'perfect storm' for the healthcare industry. Understanding the dynamics of this very fluid situation, establishing well-founded priorities, and settling on the right strategies will be key to long-term survival and success."
