ACHE of Massachusetts Spring Conference 2017

The Revolution Continues

Thursday, May 25, 2017
7:15 AM – 12:15 PM
Sheraton Framingham, 1657 Worcester Road, Framingham, MA
(Continental breakfast and lunch included.)

Federal and state governments are restructuring their health care commitments and obligations. Federal efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act are being played out in Congress. Massachusetts plans to move Mass Health to a value-based platform. And other private and public initiatives seek to slow the seemingly inexorable rise in health care expenditures while improving quality and safety.

Will all of this make American health care great again and how will this affect patients, providers and other stakeholders?

Who Should Attend ACHE of Massachusetts’ Fall Conference:

Anyone who is passionate about improving the lives of those served by our health care system should attend. Past conference attendees have included hospital and health system leaders spanning a variety of executive, clinical, strategic, and operational areas as well as executives leading physician practices, life science companies, consultancies, law firms, and more.
