"Accountability for the Care We Provide" - A Panel Discussion on Nov. 8
Steve Robertson, FACHE

Healthcare in Hawai’i is about to change for all of us. As healthcare reform is drastically changing the landscape, healthcare leaders are preparing their organizations not only to meet the requirements outlined in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act but also to thrive in the midst of tremendous change. Among the many provisions outlined in the act, few have received more attention than the provision regarding accountable care organizations (ACOs). While the healthcare field is showing strong interest in accountability, much uncertainty surrounds the formation of ACOs.

Please join us to hear how three leading health systems are preparing for this evolution. Panel members will include Art Ushijima, President and CEO of The Queen’s Health Systems; Dr. Ginny Pressler, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategic Officer of Hawai’i Pacific Health; and Kathy Raethel, President and CEO of Castle Medical Center.

This panel will compare and contrast innovative approaches leading healthcare systems have taken, the challenges they have faced, and the keys to success to improve the quality and cost effectiveness of providing care. The panel will focus on Accountable Care, the impact of the recent Supreme Court Ruling, and the effects on future roles of doctors and nurses.

Date: November 8, 2012

Time: 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. 

Location: Queen’s Conference Center
(510 S. Beretania Street)
