OtherCare: Liberation & Innovation in American Healthcare
Saturday, July 20, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM (EDT)
PPACA "ObamaCare" is the law of the land. The more we learn about the this law, and the more it gets implemented, its failure to address our most pressing healthcare delivery issues becomes evident. The good news is that there are "other" solutions, beyond what politicians offer.
Othercare is the movement to bring better care to patients through price transparency, direct contract care, and self-insured businesses and is the future of patient-centered care in our nation.
This conference is about solutions. It's about the innovators in medicine and health care policy who are solving problems, while bringing back the excellent aspects about being a doctor, and seeing a doctor.
The conference is being held the same Saturday as Art Fair in Ann Arbor, so family members/friends can enjoy the Art Fair during the conference. Business casual attire recommended. 7 hours of Category 2 AMA PRA credits are available for this conference.
