16th Annual California Health Care Leadership Academy
Welcome to health reform. Increasing demand for services. New regulatory mandates. Intensifying pressure for cost and quality accountability. Small practices seeking safe harbor in larger groups. Undercapitalized groups sinking. Hospitals and health plans acquiring practices in an accelerated “vertical integration” of health care.
Is independent medical practice doomed? Can physicians control their own destiny – and the future of medical practice?
Hear from experts and leaders of change and attend a slate of leadership and practice management workshops to position you personally and professionally for success.
Consonant with the California Health Care Leadership Academy’s mission of helping physicians and medical practice administrators better understand and manage leading-edge developments in the fast-changing health care marketplace, Increasing the Odds of Success will provide information and tools to help meet the challenges of the brave new world.
