The ACHE Code of Ethics provides a foundation on which our integrity as leaders and credibility as a profession are built. As health reform decreases the number of uninsured and defines mandated benefits, access to affordable care is challenged by limited community-based resources that provide preventive services, primary care access and ongoing care for the chronically ill. Healthcare providers and their organizations grapple with the need to increase the capacity to serve more patients, reduce health disparities and deliver better outcomes.
This half-day seminar, led by Joseph R. Betancourt, MD, will focus on the challenges of redefining services to provide greater access to healthcare and more equality in the outcomes of that care.
- The impact of millions of newly insured entering the healthcare delivery system
- The connection between care disparities and cost, quality and safety
