The Economist Healthcare Forum Nov 12, 2013: Reinventing an industry

The Economist’s Health Care Forum 2013 will explore the opportunities and challenges ahead for the American health care system—from health care providers to insurers, pharmaceuticals to technology companies, and employers across industries.

This Forum is designed for C-level and senior executives from the health care industry, as well as leaders and practitioners from the wider business community who are responsible for managing health-related processes.

How will key provisions of the Affordable Care Act impact employers, care providers and insurers?

How will care delivery, tools, and services be altered?
What resulting innovations could further change the industry landscape?

Chaired by The Economist’s health care correspondent, Charlotte Howard, this day-long conference, one in a series of Economist healthcare events around the globe, will feature leading voices in the field and help health care stakeholders plan for the years ahead.

Reinventing an industry

January 2014 will bring new state exchanges, the individual mandate, new insurance rules and a massive expansion of Medicaid. Additional changes are already underway, as millions qualify for Medicare, employers adjust their insurance models, and pressure grows to pay doctors and hospitals for value rather than volume. The 2013 Health Care Forum will explore the monumental transitions underway. It will not only help provide an understanding of the road ahead, but give actionable ideas for traversing that path.

Join The Economist for a day of stimulating discussion and debate. Full program can be found here.

Key takeaways include:

  • Innovations in health care delivery
  • How to balance cost and quality
  • Strategies to take advantage of the big data revolution
  • An evaluation of the impact of public exchanges
  • The new competitors in primary care
