Given the upheaval and changes that have characterized the industry in the last year, the theme for this MMS is "movement and change." Many unanswered questions remain about the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, while rapid change continues to impact the private sector. A movement towards coordinated care, quality, reimbursement methodologies and data driven care -- all with an underlying emphasis on technology -- is occurring in all sectors of the healthcare industry.

The Summit's esteemed faculty will explain what is certain and what is still uncertain as reform is implemented. The speakers represent many of the country's largest payers and healthcare thought leaders, and they will disseminate what is happening in the marketplace by analyzing trends, policies and technologies.

This year's keynote speakers include:

  • Farzad Mostashari, M.D., Visiting Fellow, Brookings Institute
    "Health IT and Reform: The Road to Right Care," Feb. 25 at 8:15 a.m.
  • Victor Dzau, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer, Duke University Medical Center and Health System; Chancellor for Health Affairs, Duke University
    "Challenges Facing Health Care Delivery Systems in the U.S.," Feb. 25 at 1 p.m.
  • George F. Will, Ph.D., Newspaper Columnist, Journalist and Author
    "The Political Argument Today," Feb. 26 at 8:15 a.m.
  • Dorothy Hamill, U.S. Olympic Figure Skater
    "A Champion Wins Over Depression," Feb. 26 at 1 p.m.

"We are very excited about the anticipation that is building about the insightful talks that our keynote speakers will give at this year's event," said Decision Resources Group Vice President Tony Pinsonault. "George F. Will is one of the most influential opinion leaders in the country whose syndicated column has appeared in The Washington Post for four decades. Dorothy Hamill is a gold medal Olympian and one of the country's most iconic sports figures, and in recent years her battle with breast cancer has served as an inspiration to the many lives she has touched. Dr. Victor Dzau is recognized worldwide for his lengthy and highly decorated career as a scientist, administrator and leader. And Dr. Farzad Mostashari recently served as the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology where he coordinated U.S. efforts to build a health information technology infrastructure for healthcare reform."

In addition to the keynote presentations, MMS will feature more than 50 breakout sessions in the conference program lead by industry-leading speakers from the nation's largest corporations in healthcare.
