Join our NY Healthcare Committee for a dinner and discussion event.  

Enjoy  a family style, three courses meal including beer & wine at  the Heartland Brewery Chophouse - Times Square while hearing from our expert panelists as they discuss with you the momentous changes in the health care payment system moving from paying for volume to value and how it affects patients, physicians, and hospitals.

What is value in health care and how do you measure it? How are providers paid on value? How are health care providers responding? What information is available for patients about their doctor and hospital? How can patients select high value providers?

By dessert you should understand what this new payment system is and how it impacts your healthcare.
