WASHINGTON, Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hundreds of public and private sector healthcare leaders, insurers and practitioners will share political and economic insights and frontline experiences in risk-based coordinated care at the 4th Annual CAPG Colloquium, taking place November 8-10 in Washington, DC. Keynote speakers include Senator Ron Wyden; Reps. Greg Walden and Pat Tiberi; Joseph Swedish, Chairman, President, and CEO, Anthem, Inc.; past CMS Administrators and others.
