Detroit, MI - Top officials from three of Detroit's leading healthcare institutions will headline Modern Healthcare's upcoming May 7, 2015 Issue Briefing on population health management. The Detroit event is the second in this year's multi-city series that is exploring how local healthcare markets are addressing this crucial issue.
Joe Mullany, CEO, Detroit Medical Center; Dr. Bruce Muma, Chief Medical Officer, Henry Ford Physician Network; and Dr. Thomas Simmer, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, will discuss a range of topics related to population health management, including the impact of new payment models that emphasize value, the role of health information technology, and the progress being made by Detroit hospitals, physicians and insurers.
“At its core, healthcare is local and personal,” said Fawn Lopez, Vice President and Publisher of Modern Healthcare. “Providers that are able to address healthcare needs across the entire population they serve will be better positioned to improve both clinical and financial outcomes.”
Modern Healthcare delivers the same high-level audience at their events as they do with the readership of their print and digital editorial products. The Modern Healthcare Issue Briefings were designed with the executive audience in mind, leaders who seek out critical information and insight. The successful breakfast series was launched in 2014 with events in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, and most recently Houston.
“Attendees value that our Issue Briefings are strong, unfiltered discussions,” said Merrill Goozner, editor of Modern Healthcare. “They're able to walk away with the latest insights and strategies pertaining to the most important, timely issues facing the business of healthcare.”
