Did Obamacare improve healthcare?

What are the key ‘pain points’ impacting the system?

What policies could improve access, quality and cost?

How can each stakeholder address their respective challenges?

With healthcare spending expected to reach 20% of our GDP by 2025, policies that will create an effective healthcare system are of paramount importance right now in US. As law makers attempt to develop new policies, the timing is right for healthcare leaders to discuss the issues and perspectives from the industry.

We invite you to participate with experts and executives representing primary stakeholders in the healthcare industry: providers (hospitals, physicians), product companies (pharma, biotech, medical device), payers (insurers), actuarial scientist or risk managers, data companies and policy makers, and to hear their insight and recommendations for improving the system.
