The 10th Annual American Health Care Congress (AHCC) is an intensive, two-day educational and networking forum designed for senior health care executives from hospitals, health systems, health plans, and medical groups. The 2013 Congress will convene thought leaders from diverse sectors to address meaningful change in our system - policy, business strategy, and care delivery transformation, with an agenda focused on four critical issues facing health care providers and payers - alignment, affordability, innovation, and implementation. It is a historic time in health care, and the 10th American Health Care Congress strives to equip delegates with the meaningful information, practical tools, and thought provoking discussions needed to navigate this rapid change.

  • Health Insurance Exchanges and the Affordability of Care
