Former OMB director Orszag among keynoters to talk finance at ANI

Peter Orszag, President Obama's first director of the Office of Management and Budget, will be among the keynote speakers at the Healthcare Financial Management Association's 2011 ANI Conference in Orlando, Fla.

Orszag, who is now a vice chairman with Citigroup, will speak on Tuesday, June 28. His presentation, "Reforming America's Health Care: An Insider's Perspective," will focus on his role in creating the budgetary support for passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which relies on provider cuts and quality incentives to reduce the cost of healthcare delivery.

The first keynote speaker, Maureen Bisognano, CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, will make her presentation on Sunday, which is a "pre-conference" day that still has a full schedule of presentations. Her address will focus on the need for quality management in order to reap higher quality results.

There are also two non-healthcare keynoters: Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of the Duke University men's basketball team, and author Mark Thomspon, former chief customer experience officer at Schwab. They will discuss how to achieve overall success.

The conference will also include six "featured speakers." Martin Arrick of Standard & Poor's will discuss how the current economic climate and healthcare reform are impacting access to capital. Nicholas Wolter, MD, CEO of the Billings Clinic, will discuss how reform of the delivery and payment systems will change healthcare.
