2021 Health Care Forecast Conference
 

Impact of Covid-19 Pandemic on Health Care & Health Policy

Registration Now Closed

We are pleased to announce the virtual 30th annual Health Care Forecast Conference!

The conference will present a short-term health care economic and political forecast. It will focus on the impact of the pandemic and how it will affect health care coverage, delivery, Federal and States' policy, and the economy. The pandemic has severely stressed the health care delivery system. Impact on all sectors, including financial pressures, use of telehealth, clinical data exchange and provider burnout and other key areas will be expertly discussed.

Every year we aim to provide to our audience the very highest levels of expert and insightful knowledge on health care issues. Our conference is comprised of some 300-350 senior to top executives in health care organizations, primarily providers and payors. The conference will provide stimulating dialogue on assessing the impact of the pandemic on stakeholders and how to solve critical health care issues under these circumstances.

Speakers we invite are thought leaders and top executives in health care, academia, as well as staff and former staff persons from Congress and from the State of California, all of whom will share their insights from both a public and private sector perspective.

This is an excellent opportunity to participate in an examination of the effects of the pandemic on the health care industry and health care policy and to gain insight into how it will affect one's business organization and constituents. 

The conference was developed for MD executives, RN executives, presidents and CEO’s, Trustees, senior management from provider and insurer organizations, pharmaceutical, medical device and biotech companies, large employers, government staff, consultants and media.
