The American Healthcare Landscape in 2014

Audience members in conversation

Social Enterprise Leadership Forum:
The American Healthcare Landscape in 2014

Thursday, April 28, 2011

With the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act last March, the Obama administration introduced a set of reforms that have the potential to dramatically alter healthcare practice in America.

However, this law's impact on key stakeholders — from service providers, to insurers, to the legions of currently uninsured — depends critically on how the law's high-level principles are translated into actual healthcare policy and practice. What is the future of Medicare and Medicaid? How will reforms affect the returns of healthcare investors? How will national reforms play out locally — in New York and around the country? Understanding the local implications of healthcare reform here in New York is critical to planning for a future that is already unfolding in markets across the country. The speakers and discussants that we have put together for our Leadership Forum have an insider's perspective on healthcare reform and on the current dynamics of healthcare in New York. They are uniquely positioned to provide insight and foster discussion on what this future may hold. Participants

The audience of about 100 will include: top administrators from area hospitals, service organizations, industry, and government; health care investors — both profit-focused and philanthropic; and entrepreneurs.
