H.I.L. Forum presents an evening conference on healthcare reform. From the event website:
“The American healthcare sector has never experienced such a time of crisis, uncertainty, and opportunity. As a result, the new Obama Administration has made healthcare the centerpiece of its stimulus and reform plans. Billions of dollars are flowing into healthcare from Bush’s Troubled Asset Relief Program, and tens of billions more are expected from President Obama’s new American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan and from Daschle’s comprehensive reform plan. But how do you and your organization learn about the change and get ahead of it?
“Now, the Transforming Healthcare Summit 2009: Impact & Opportunity in the Obama Plan, Thursday February 26, 2009, 5:45 to 9:30 pm, at the Seaport Hotel Boston, brings together leading stakeholders from politics, providers, payers, and healthcare IT to provide you with insights on the current efforts to increase patients’ access to care and promote the use of new healthcare information technology. James Roosevelt, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Tufts Health Plan and an expert on the Obama healthcare plan, will provide an overview of what to expect from the new Administration. Panelists Charlie Baker, Jonathan Bush, and John Glaser will discuss the implications and opportunities for providers, payers, healthcare IT firms, and the US healthcare system as a whole.”
