Will the New Congress Kill Health Reform?
Brentwood, TN (Vocus) November 9, 2010
Kristin Welsh, vice president for Federal Affairs at the http:/American Hospital Association in Washington, D.C., will discuss the potential implications of the Republican gains in Congress on health reform during a QHR Learning Institute Webinar on Friday, Nov. 12. The event, titled “Will the New Congress Kill Health Reform?” will begin at 10:30 a.m. CST and is free to the public with registration at http://www.qhrlearninginstitute.com.
“Even though the Congressional landscape has changed, the underlying economic drivers that brought about health reform legislation are still prevalent and unsustainable. Thus, the delivery system and payment reform aspects of reform still require the attention of our nation's hospital leaders,” says QHR Vice President of Eastern Operations Mickey Bilbrey. “Participation in this Webinar – and in the reform discussion in general – is important because, while Congress may not materially alter the foundational elements of PPACA, the new Congress may ‘tweak’ various structural components that could impact Medicare and the scheduled roll out of various aspects of health reform.”
Join us for this timely event, which will explore:
- Final election results: Who won what (and where), after the dust settled in Washington
- What changes may come in specific Congressional leadership positions;
- What the change in House control may mean to the health reform legislation;
- How a split legislature may dictate the contents and pace of health reform
- Perspectives on specific dimensions of health reform legislation that affect hospitals; and
- The impact of the election on the AHA’s strategies for working to improve America’s hospitals and health systems.
