When Californians walk into doctors’ offices, hospitals, and clinics in the years to come, how will their experiences be changed by the passage of federal health reform? How can we work together to put this legislation into effect in ways that improve the quality of the care we receive? That build on our state’s successful models of high-value care?
Addressing these questions at this event will be three of the state’s most innovative healthcare leaders. Each was influential during the reform debate and responsible for pioneering practices that were models for federal legislation. They will share their candid opinions about the opportunities in federal reform implementation and discuss the challenges that lie ahead.
The event will be kicked off by Kavita Patel, MD, the new director of the Health Policy Program at the New America Foundation, who held a series of key positions in the Congress and White House during the legislative process that resulted in the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
