Cracking the Code on Healthcare

March 14, 2012

On Wednesday, March 14, 2012, Buck Consultants, in partnership with Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Georgia, Healthcare 21 Business Coalition, Piedmont Healthcare and NorthStar Network, will host its first Cracking the Code on Healthcare event at the Georgia Club in Atlanta, Georgia. The symposium theme is:

Payment Reform -
Innovative Models for Care, Collaboration, Compensation and Reducing Cost.

This healthcare event will address the issue of Payment Reform head on. We all know that we must transform the way we pay for healthcare. The big question is HOW? What gets paid for? By whom? To whom? And how will it affect the delivery and quality of care? These are the major challenges facing providers, insurers, employers and patients alike.

Utilizing a series of keynote presentations, panel discussions and breakout sessions our thought leaders will take an in-depth look at Payment Reform. How will it change the way healthcare is diagnosed? How options are reviewed? How care is selected? How healthcare is provided and payment for service is determined and delivered. And how it will affect cost.

Our two keynote presenters are nationally recognized experts who have been at the fore front of developing strategies and plans mandated by the Affordable Care Act.
