LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MDS Consulting announced today that it will hold its 7th annual national conference Sept. 30 – Oct. 2 at the Encore Hotel in Las Vegas. There, many of the nation’s preeminent thought leaders on the changing healthcare landscape will gather to discuss innovative approaches and new strategies designed to drive higher quality and value in healthcare.
“The uncertainty in the evolution of healthcare reform is causing hospitals, physicians and health plan leaders to face unprecedented challenges in charting the future direction of their organizations,” said Phil Dalton, president and CEO of MDS. “Our conference is designed to help these leaders tackle the changing dynamic of the marketplace and develop sensible strategies that will help them succeed.”
Among the topics to be discussed at the conference are the emergence of accountable care organizations, the importance of clinical integration, new strategies for hospital/physician alignment and health plans, the impact of health insurance exchanges, and the changes taking place in both reimbursement and service delivery models. Attendees will also hear a national perspective on the latest developments regarding healthcare reform and what lies ahead after the November elections.
“In addition to hearing from our distinguished faculty, the intensive two-day conference provides a wonderful opportunity for attendees to interact with their colleagues from across the country to share best practices and establish ongoing connections,” said Dalton.
Aptly named “Navigating the Road to the Future: Transforming the Way Hospitals, Physicians & Health Plans Conduct Business,” the conference is expected to attract hospital executives; physician leaders; healthcare attorneys; and industry executives from finance, nursing and business development.
