Our event speaker, Jim Jacobsohn, Vice President, Sg2, is a professional that specializes in areas such as marketing, insurance payment model redesign, billing and coding, regulations and compliance and healthcare standards.  Mr. Jacobsohn will look beyond the headlines to explore the short and long-term ramifications of important topics such as consumerism, shift to value, narrow networks and policy updates.

Emerging issues and trends in healthcare are identified annually and affect us on a national, statewide and local level .  Healthcare is a highly regulated industry, the landscape changes rapidly and is complicated at best.  Patients are taking a more active role in their healthcare- from health and wellness, to using the internet to educate themselves and loved ones on symptoms, diagnoses, provider comparisons, benefits and contraindications of medications and more.  Tampa Bay is fast becoming a massive center for healthcare consumers AND providers.

Do you want to know what healthcare trends might impact your organization?  The AMA Healthcare Special Interest Group brings you an accomplished and knowledgeable analyst and expert in not only the field of healthcare but the Tampa Bay region, who will examine these trends and what they mean for each of our industries.

Key Takeaways:

  • Major drivers of state and federal policy changes and how they will impact the Tampa Bay market
  • Strategies you can implement based upon the impact of consumerism to Tampa Bay patients and providers
  • Tactics to publicize health care products/services to consumers, providers and employers
