Bending the Curve

Healthcare costs in the United States are higher than in any other industrialized nation and have grown at a much faster rate.  As the historical rate of growth is not sustainable, change is necessary.  But what approaches can we take to slow the growth without compromising our population’s health?

There is no one simple answer and no single field of study that can solve this complex problem. How can we utilize medical records to provide a better quality of care while at the same time lowering the cost of care? What can communities do to improve the health of their members? How do we evaluate whether wellness programs work? Can payors increase the quality of care for patients by creating medical homes?

Join us November 1 - 2, 2013 for a conference at Bucknell University to discuss questions like these.

This conference features presenters from nationally recognized Geisinger Health System and Geisinger Health Plan and renowned speakers from Bucknell, Penn State, and Washington University-St. Louis. Dr. Glenn Steele, President & CEO of Geisinger Health System, and Dr. Timothy McBride, influential health policy expert, are the keynote speakers.

Please register today for the opportunity to interact with and learn from academics and working professionals from a variety of fields and backgrounds who are at the forefront of one of the most important policy issues in modern America.
