Health Care Reform Implementation in Minnesota: Mission Advanced But Not Accomplished


The Hamline Health Law Institute and Hamline Law Review invites the Hamline community to the event, "Health Care Reform Implementation in Minnesota: Mission Advanced But Not Accomplished" on Friday, October 24 from 8:45 - 3:55 p.m. in Anderson Center Rooms 111/112.

Regional and national experts will explore the real, outstanding, and upcoming law and policy issues relating to the implementation of health care reform. This group of experts will address challenges facing the legal and health care community in Minnesota. Through seven plenary and concurrent sessions, expert speakers will connect attendees with the issues related to health care access and delivery, and provide valuable takeaway lessons.

Session tracks include: Access & Coverage (Employers, Low Income & Vulnerable Populations, Coverage is Not Access) and Delivery & Quality (Integration Beyond Accountable Care Organizations, Academic Medical Centers).

This special one-day event is relevant for clinicians, policymakers, and industry leaders - those charged with implementing health care reform. Discussion topics will center around informing, guiding, and prompting the development of needed public policy and institutional guidance. Priorities for further regionally-specific and legal research will also be identified.
