Description

Improving Access to Healthcare

Healthcare access affects everyone's physical, social, and mental health status and quality of life, and barriers to comprehensive and quality services continue to exist across the country and around the world. Recent national discussions around the U.S. healthcare system have given renewed urgency to the question of how we can improve access in an environment with rising overall costs of delivering care, an aging population, and a devastating opioid crisis. However, there are many different interpretations in the literature and popular discourse of what "access" even means -- is it synonymous with "coverage"? Is having more options better than cheaper ones? We will be conceptualizing access through the lens of a supply-side and demand-side framework (Levesque, et al) and examining how various players in the healthcare industry are trying to move patients from having unmet needs to fully engaging with their care, and hopefully resulting in better health outcomes. The conference includes a keynote and a series of panels and presentations, featuring leadership from across many industries within healthcare.

About the Conference

Our 7th Annual Healthcare Conference is a student-organized event bringing together students from business and health science schools, researchers, thought leaders, and practitioners of the business of healthcare. The conference will take place on Friday, November 17th, 2017 at the Kenan-Flagler Business School from 7:30am-3:00pm. The conference is the premier event for the business school and a great way to connect with professionals in all healthcare fields.
