How does a good policy idea turn into a good vote in the Legislature? That is a hard question to answer. When it comes to healthcare policy, that challenge is even more complicated.
If you are interested in understanding what occurs at the nexus of healthcare policy and politics, then this is the conference for you.
Legislators and physicians, policy staff and hospital executives, MHA students and industry thought leaders - if you have an interest in the future of health care and health reform, then you won't want to miss this event.
Three distinct policy tracks for attendees, with national, regional and local leaders participating:
- Track 1: Implementing federal reforms. What will exchanges look? How will we handle Medicaid expansion?
- Track 2: What’s next for Washington State? What's next for our state? What about delivery system reform? How to fund substantive change?
- Track 3: Policy Meets Politics: Who is driving the debate? What is the impact of the 2012 elections?
