Health Care in 2020 and Beyond

Increasing pharmaceutical costs, the evolution of electronic medical records, and uncertainty about predominant payer models are just a few of the challenges leaders in health care face both regionally and nationally as we approach the coming decade. As interdisciplinary experts debate how best to approach these problems, we must have an understanding of the underlying issues, as well as the solutions being discussed. How do we alter the system without sacrificing patient care and access? What can all players do to converge on solutions that work for all? These are some of the questions industry leaders will address in this year’s forum: Health Care in 2020 and Beyond.
