Bremerton, WA (PRWEB) August 11, 2015
The Kitsap Business Forum will present “What’s Happening in Kitsap with Healthcare?” on August 11. Shannon Bruce, Excell Puget Sound and Mary Berglind, Martha & Mary will co-lead a panel discussion of local executives from the Kitsap County Healthcare Community who will share their perspectives on two key areas: Triple Aim and Collaboration. Triple aim, one aspect of the Affordable Care Act, is about improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction), improving the health of populations, and reducing the per capita cost of healthcare. To effectively reach this goal, healthcare organizations must engage in collaboration to leverage resources and achieve the goals of the Triple Aim framework. The panel consists of David Schultz, Harrison Medical Center; Jim Page, Group Health & KPS; Jenifer Kreidler-Moss, Peninsula Community Health Services; Jay Burghart, The Doctors Clinic and Dr. George Berni, Harrison Health Partners.
With the continued changes in healthcare in mind, attendees will hear from the “many voices” who offer differing perspectives on the aspects of Triple Aim and what the impact is on Kitsap businesses, their employees and the community. There will also be a discussion on what it means to effectively collaborate to improve quality and care while lowering cost. Additionally, attendees’ questions posed prior to and during the event will be answered, contributing to a rich and lively conversation.
The forum is held at the Kitsap Conference Center, 100 Washington Avenue, Bremerton (3rd Floor). Parking is provided for KBF attendees in the Anthony’s parking spaces, first floor blue level. Program starts at 7:30 a.m. and finishes at 9:00 a.m.
