Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 8, 2008
Atlantic Information Services, Inc. is pleased to announce its upcoming conference, "Health Reform and the 2008 Elections: What's Ahead for Health Care Access, Delivery and Financing?" being held July 10-11 on Capitol Hill. This unique 2-day forum is designed to give health plans, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and other health care organizations the opportunity to meet and interact with the nation's top health policy makers.
The debate about how to fix the health care system will reach a fever-pitch when the 111th Congress and new President begin their work in 2009. And the chances of major health system reform will be greater than they've been for 15 years, with potentially staggering implications for everyone, in policy areas including:
-- Universal coverage
-- Mandated benefits
-- Value-based insurance
-- Consumer-driven plans
-- Employer mandates
-- Individual mandates
-- State-based solutions
