Alert: Bloomberg to Gather Healthcare Experts in Chicago, April 27th
Date:3/11/2010

The Bloomberg Health & America Briefing will convene a live audience of 100 top representatives from government, medical schools, insurance companies, pharmaceutical firms, corporate boards and investment funds for a discussion about how to expand healthcare while controlling costs.

(PRWEB) March 8, 2010 -- The Bloomberg Health & America Briefing, to be held April 27th at the University of Chicago Gleacher Center, will feature a full day of sessions on the most timely and important questions facing the healthcare industry's key stakeholders. The goal is to examine the central challenges involved in implementing health-care reform -- controlling costs while improving quality -- and the impact that effort will have on industry, through the eyes of the experts on this issue.

No matter the outcome of the efforts underway in Congress, health-care reform is a top priority in the U.S. The effects of a health-care overhaul are staggering, not just for the insured, but for corporations, investors, governments and the medical industry as a whole.

The format will be a series of live, on-stage interviews designed to get to the core of the issues and elicit new, actionable information for those whose livelihoods most depend on the outcome of the health-care debate.

Award-winning Bloomberg journalists and other experts will conduct one-on-one interviews with leaders including:

 
  • Eric E. Whitaker, MD, MPH, Executive Vice President, Strategic Affiliations and , Associate Dean, Community-Based Research, The University of Chicago Medical Center
  • J. James Rohack, M.D., President, American Medical Association (AMA)
  • Darrell G. Kirch, M.D., President and CEO, Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)
  • Maureen Bisognano, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI)
  • David T. Brooks, Chief Executive Officer, Providence Regional Medical Center Everett
  • Jon R. Cohen, M.D., Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Quest Diagnostics
  • Bill Conroy, CEO and President, Initiate, an IBM Company
  • Les Funtleyder, MPH, Healthcare Strategist, Miller Tabak + Co., LLC
