Columbia Business School hosts American Healthcare Landscape in 2014 Leadership Forum

April 22, 2011

Who: Columbia Business School's Social Enterprise Program

What: The Social Enterprise Program at Columbia Business School will host a Leadership Forum that features speakers and discussants with an insider's perspective on healthcare reform and the current dynamics of healthcare in New York.

When:

Thursday, April 28, 2011
8:00 a.m. - 2:30 a.m.

Where:

Faculty House, Columbia University
64 Morningside Drive (Entrance off 116th Street, East of Amsterdam Avenue)

Why:

With the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act last March, the Obama administration introduced a set of reforms that have the potential to dramatically alter healthcare practice in America. However, this law's impact on key stakeholders--from service providers, to insurers, to the legions of currently uninsured--depends critically on how the law's high-level principles are translated into actual healthcare policy and practice. What is the future of Medicare and Medicaid? How will reforms affect the returns of healthcare investors? How will national reforms play out locally--in New York and around the country? Understanding the local implications of healthcare reform here in New York is critical to planning for a future that is already unfolding in markets across the country.
