The Economist Health Care Forum 2014: A Global Business in Flux

The Economist is coming to Boston for it’s second annual Health Care Forum, this year with the focus on “A Global Business in Flux” on September 17, 2014 at The Seaport Boston Hotel on the Boston waterfront across from The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

The opening session will address the critical question facing American health care companies today–How must hospitals and businesses evolve to serve patients in the global new care economy? Jim Griner, President of iTriage; Charles Sorenson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Intermountain Healthcare; Bruce Broussard, Chief Executive of Humana; Donna Shalala, President of the University of Miami and former Secretary of Health and Human Services; Dr. Victor Dzau, President and Chief Executive of Duke University Hospital System; and Osnat Levzion-Korach, Director of Hadassah University Hospital in Mount Scopus, Israel will give the keynotes.

Other very interesting topics will include globalization of health care, learning from foreign models, finding market gaps, price transparency, product innovation, and hospitals and health care of the future. The incredible day of cutting edge insights will end with local celebrity and disrupting health evangelist Jonathan Bush, Chief Executive, President and Chairman of Athenahealth in a debate–Has Obamacare failed or succeeded? The day will clearly not end on a boring note.

Boston, please don’t forget to support other local celebrities–Sandra Fenwick, Chief Executive of Boston Children’s Hospital and Dr. Anita Goel, Chairman and Chief Executive Office of Nanobiosym– as they showcase Boston’s true depth of medical innovation on a world stage.

This is a don’t miss full-day conference designed for leaders in the health care field (and Boston, you know we have ALOT of those) to discuss the opportunities and challenges ahead for the health care system.
