The Yale Healthcare Conference is a joint effort between the Yale School of Management and the Health Professional Schools at Yale University that brings together professionals, academics, and students to engage in an instructive conversation concerning current healthcare issues. This will be the 7th consecutive year and they expect the conference to continue growing to over 450 participants.
April 1, 2011 - 9AM - 4:30PM / Omni New Haven Hotel At Yale
With the recent, historic passage of healthcare reform legislation, the U.S. healthcare system is experiencing its most significant transformation in the last 40 years. Restructuring of the healthcare system will have significant implications for how healthcare is delivered, financed and regulated. The conference offers a perfectly-timed opportunity to illuminate the changes that key stakeholders will face with reform, also expanding upon how excellence can be fostered in a modified system. Specifically, the conference will examine:
* What are downstream effects of policy aimed at health insurance and health care reform?
* What are the public and private solutions to bending the cost curve?
* How are incentives currently aligned and what are the tradeoffs for realigning them?
* What are the short-term and long-term implications for access to care?
* How do we measure and continue to improve quality in the system?
