The 20th Annual Western Health Care Leadership Academy is the conference to attend for physician leaders who want to stay on top of political and health policy changes to shape the future of health care. The program provides a high level of insight, guidance and political intelligence about what will happen this year on the national stage. Those attending will be out in front as history plays out for the Affordable Care Act, federal health reform and the implementation of Medicare payment reform.
Friday, May 5, will feature three speakers perfectly positioned to talk about health care system changes on the national level. In the first general session, Lanhee Chen, Ph.D., will discuss Market-Based Health Reform After Obamacare: Dead on Arrival, Sick, or Alive and Well? Chen was an adviser to Senator Marco Rubio’s 2016 presidential campaign, as well as the policy director for the 2012 Romney-Ryan presidential campaign.
Then, Paul Begala, CNN commentator and political consultant, and Hugh Hewitt, radio news host and political analyst, will bring bipartisan banter to the health reform conversation, offering commentary from both sides of the aisle in A Conversation About Health Policy.
Join us to learn about leading-edge trends and developments in the rapidly changing health care marketplace; prepare for changes affecting your practice, your profession and your economic future; learn techniques to minimize financial risks and boost the bottom line; and acquire skills needed to excel as a medical practice or medical staff leader.
