Symposium Panels:

Moderator: Alan Weil, Editor-in-Chief of Health Affairs

Panel 1: The Healthcare Shift: Where do We Go From Here?

The ACA became the law of the land nine years ago. If lessons of both the ACA’s passage and the repeal-and-replace debate is that reform must be bipartisan, what does a solutions-oriented conversation look like, how do we get there, and what does this shift mean for the future of health care reform?

Featured Panelists:

  • Dr. Thomas E. Price - Former Secretary of Health and Human Services and Orthopedic Surgeon
  • Neera Tanden - President and CEO, Center for American Progress
  • Trine Tsouderos - Director, PwC’s Health Research Institute (HRI)

Panel 2: Consumerism in Healthcare: Opportunities and Obstacles

Through interactions with other service industries, patient expectations about healthcare experiences have changed. Patients are increasingly prepared to interact with the medical industry as consumers rather than as passive patients. As there is an increasing demand for healthcare providers to provide care that is convenient, technology enabled, and even price transparent, this panel will examine the different opportunities and obstacles the healthcare industry faces when it comes to consumerism.

Featured Panelists:

  • Jelynne LeBlanc Burley - President and CEO, The Center for Healthcare Services
  • Michael Zucker - CEO and Co-Founder, FetchMD
  • Dr. Louis Profeta - Emergency Physician, St. Vincent Hospital of Indianapolis
