What does the actual health reform plan look like, what happens when 30 million new people enter the “system” as we know it, and what will it all mean for your organization? “Obamacare” has survived the Supreme Court, but the health reform law itself may be overshadowed by larger shifts in market power - and continuing government budget crises, as lawmakers target Medicare and Medicaid as sources of major savings. This session provides a critical overview of where health care stands today; the latest on spending trends and market dynamics; and how the health reform plan will play out for all major stakeholders, including providers, payers, employers, patients and consumers. This session examines the concurrent effects of the reform plan, health insurance market upheavals, increasing patient economic empowerment, and emerging information technologies on today’s health care organization. And it lays out a practical framework and set of critical success factors for your organization going forward, as health care faces the greatest challenges and changes in our lifetimes.

J.D.Kleinke has been instrumental in the creation of four health care information organizations, most notably HealthGrades. He has helped hospital systems, insurers and physician groups prepare for medical computerization and health reform; provided business, product and technology strategy services to new and established health care companies; and sat on the Boards of several public and privately held health information companies. In 2012, he was a Resident Fellow of the American Enterprise Institute. Mr. Kleinke has authored three books on the U.S. health care system, Bleeding Edge: The Business of Health Care in the New Century and Oxymorons: The Myth of a U.S. Health Care System, and Catching Babies (2011). His work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Barron’s, Health Affairs, JAMA, the British Medical Journal, Modern Healthcare, Managed Healthcare, Forbes, and numerous other publications. Since his earliest writings on health policy and market dynamics in The Wall Street Journal in the early 1990s, Mr. Kleinke has long been known as a forceful, non-partisan advocate for an evidence-driven, computerized, patient-centric health care system.
