Registration for the Institute is available at: www.mbproject.org. The Institute provides thought leadership on best practices in medical banking and convenes commerce, government and academia to advance a common policy and educational platform.

"This is a landmark achievement for the medical banking industry," said John Casillas, Founding Director of The Medical Banking Project, a pioneering authority in the nexus of banking and healthcare systems. "The Tool Kit contains a new 'Standards Panel' developed by our members that aggregates best practices in the emerging industry of medical banking."

"If you are not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem!" said J. Scot Sharland, Executive Director for the 1,100 employer-strong, Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG). "Given the scope and complexity of the challenge and urgent need, it was imperative that we assemble the brightest and the best from automotive, banking and healthcare, check ego's at the door, and commit ourselves to developing common tools to help companies manage their financial recovery and provide more cost-effective coverage for working families. We are proud to have collaborated on the Medical Banking Project and will be promoting use of the Tool Kit to all of our members."

J. Scot Sharland will speak during the panel, as well as representatives from Wachovia-Wells Fargo, who participated in its production, and The LeapFrog Group, comprised of Fortune 100 firms. The panel will discuss how banks can unite with employers to optimize human capital in the area of improved claims administration, delivery of consumer health IT tools and services and general education about how employees can achieve healthier lifestyles.

"It's important to recognize the contributions of Joe Fortuna, MD, who we worked with to pioneer the vision of a banking-employer platform to improve healthcare, and Jim Paterson who spearheaded MBProject's Joint Task Group for this effort," said Casillas. Both individuals served in leadership capacities on AIAG's Healthcare Steering Committee and participated on the MBProject team.

"The Tool Kit underscores how MBProject operates," stressed Casillas, "by testing the fate of medical banking in the marketplace. Our programs aren't accompanied by legislative fat but are tried and proven in the operations of everyday healthcare providers and health plans. They represent a growing body of evidence and best practices by a diverse stakeholder membership base at MBProject who have one common objective - to improve healthcare."
