ACHE of Massachusetts Spring Conference 2018: The New Healthcare Paradigm and Organizations That Are Shaping It

May 4, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Friday, May 4, 2018
7:30 AM – Noon PM
DoubleTree by Hilton
5400 Computer Drive, Westborough, MA
(Continental breakfast and lunch included.)

A 6% increase per year in US health care costs over the next decade is projected, bringing health care’s share of our GNP from 19% to 25% – when for the rest of the industrialized would it is only 6-10%. And, despite this massive spend, US still ranks as the unhealthiest nation in the industrialized world.

Congress plans to take up “Entitlements Reform” next – threatening massive cuts to Medicare and Medicaid just as 80 million Baby Boomers enter their 70’s and 80’s – the peak years for health care needs.

Something has got to give! The whole health care industry – big pharma, medical device manufacturers, providers, and insurance companies – will need to make radical changes.

Enter disruptive innovators: Big Data and new payment models that demand control of total medical expense while providing higher quality and greater access. Increasing volume, visits and procedures to generate revenue will not work. The future must focus on the real determinates of health: Behavior, Engagement and Environment.

ACHE of MA’s Spring Conference will focus on organizations and individuals that are successfully implementing changes and creating The Future of Health Care in America. Pay attention to this paradigm shift – or risk becoming the next incandescent light bulb!
