The Ethics of Access to Care and Care Disparities
Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2013
8:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
In conjunction with the New York Cluster
As a healthcare leader, you are called upon to make difficult choices surrounding your organization’s need to provide greater access to healthcare and more equality in the outcomes of that care.
The analysis and real-world experiences to be shared by presenter Joseph R. Betancourt, MD, director, The Disparities Solutions Center, along with an expert panel of healthcare executives, will focus on the impact of millions of newly insured entering the healthcare delivery system; adapting our systems to meet the healthcare needs of diverse populations; and striving to create equity in a time of rapid healthcare transformation.
The Innovation Center: Taking Action to Improve Care and Reduce Costs
Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013
8:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
In conjunction with the San Diego Cluster
Growing numbers of innovators—healthcare executives, clinicians, community leaders and more—are participating in models being tested across the country by the U.S. Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (the Innovation Center) to improve the quality and reduce the costs of patient care.
In this half-day session, keynote speaker Valinda R. Rutledge will discuss the role of the CMS Innovation Center and the extraordinary impact the funded projects will have on future payment and service delivery models. A panel of healthcare leaders will share breakthrough strategies to improve patient safety, promote coordinated care across healthcare settings and meet the complex needs of those dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.
ACHE Executive Program scholarships are underwritten in part by Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.
Programs qualify for ACHE Face-to-Face Education credits.
