On Feb. 27, learn how the Healthcare Transformation Project is helping hospital labor and management work together.

In 2010, United States healthcare expenditures were at a record high of 18%, or $2.6 trillion, of the Gross Domestic Product. Yet, Americans continue to experience low quality of care and spend two and half times more than other peer industrialized countries. The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the implementation of new standards from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have made it imperative to develop transformative processes that accelerate the coordination of care, increase patient engagement and reduce costs. Cornell University's Healthcare Transformation Project and several alumni have designed innovative ways to address these issues by using labor-management partnerships and implementing new organizational models to enhance the quality of and access to care, increase patient engagement and reduce costs.
Join us for a discussion with Cornell alumni who are taking the lead in transforming healthcare delivery, including Hilary Corrigan, Dr. Michael Kantrowitz, and Dr. Farbod Raiszadeh. Peter Lazes, director of ILR's Healthcare Transformation Project, will moderate.
