Health Academic Exchange

Health Care Forum

With the anticipated changes in the health care industry, it is imperative that innovative care delivery and payment models be developed to increase both physician decision making (diagnostic procedures and treatment guidelines) and operational efficiency to make quality care both affordable and accessible to improve the health of those in a community.

Recognizing that patient-physician relationship and interaction is the key, this forum will use the "Physician Practice" as the focal point as we identify both challenges and opportunities under the new health care economy.

If you have any questions about the forum, please contact the administrator:
