ACHE of Massachusetts 2019 Spring Conference

Healthcare in 2025: The Future is Now

Friday, May 17, 2019
7:00 AM – 11:45 AM
DoubleTree by Hilton
5400 Computer Drive, Westborough, MA
(Continental breakfast and lunch included.)

Current healthcare cost growth is unsustainable while preventable errors, uneven access, waste, and inefficiency remains. Clearly we are reaching a tipping point.
Major players from outside the industry have recognized this and are attempting to seize an opportunity in the market. Amazon, JPMorgan Chase and Berkshire Hathaway made news in January when they announced plans to form a company that will deliver innovation and higher value healthcare to their employees. Other nontraditional healthcare players around the world, including Amazon, Alibaba, Tencent, Apple and Samsung, have already entered the industry, promising to change the game by leveraging artificial intelligence, big data, and other disruptive technologies. 

  • What are leading healthcare providers in this market doing to insure that their organizations will continue to flourish and address these challenges?
  • How will care be delivered in the future?
  • What must we do as an industry to improve health and create more value now?

Our spring conference continues ACHE of Massachusetts' focus on the organizational, structural, financial, and partnership/affiliation models currently being implemented that will drive healthcare’s future.
