(PRWEB) July 2, 2010 -- HealthSmart hosted its first symposium for clients, prospective clients and brokers on June 23- 24, 2010 near the home office in Irving, Texas.

The Forum topics covered developments in healthcare reform and factors influencing cost trends. The keynote speaker on the first day was Jim VandeHei, Executive Editor and Co-founder of POLITICO, a nonpartisan media company covering national politics. On the second day Scott McFarland, President of the Wellness Enterprise for the Cleveland Clinic delivered the keynote address on Creating a Culture of Wellness.

Several informational panels discussed strategies to improve member health and ways to reduce cost.
