HBA’s Upcoming Healthcare Forum: Impact of Healthcare Reform on Innovation
Our partners over at the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) Boston chapter recently announced their upcoming Healthcare Forum. This will be a dynamic, multi-sector panel of Boston healthcare leaders who will discuss the impact of healthcare reform on innovation and their company strategies. It promises to be an engaging event, so we wanted to be sure to share it with our readers here.
The Forum will be held on Thursday, September 13, 2012 from 5:30 – 9:00 pm at the Langham Hotel, 250 Franklin Street, Boston. Local healthcare business leaders will discuss how reform and regulation are driving and inhibiting innovation across the spectrum of healthcare businesses in Boston. In this time of transition, these thought leaders will speak about how their organizations are using new business models, novel partnerships, and out-of-the-box thinking to change how healthcare is delivered.
Martha Bebinger, WBUR Healthcare Reporter, will moderate the panel of distinguished speakers including:
- Naomi Fried, Chief Innovation Officer, Children’s Hospital Boston
- Justine M. Carr, M.D., CMO, Steward Health Care System
- Nancy J. Gagliano, M.D., CMO, CVS MinuteClinic
- Tamima Itani, Vice President of Global Regulatory Affairs and Regulatory Compliance, Boston Scientific Corporation
- Christina Severin, President, Network Health
- Samantha Singer, Vice President of Corporate Strategy, Biogen Idec.
“This forum is designed to allow attendees to obtain new awareness of changes being driven right here in Boston in all healthcare sectors, understanding of the impact of reform on their roles and their companies,” said Keri Collette, President of the HBA Boston chapter. “The event will offer network-building opportunities as well, because we believe that this will spark stimulating dialogue both at the event and going forward.”
