BURLINGTON, Mass., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2014 Spring Managed Markets Summit, presented by Decision Resources Group, comes at a critical time in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the evolution of the healthcare system in the United States. While rapid change is occurring in the private sector, many questions still remain in the rollout of the ACA. The movement is now underway towards coordinated care, quality, reimbursement methodologies and data-driven care, all with an underlying emphasis on technology.
"Our distinguished Summit faculty has been tasked with providing clarity and will concentrate on explaining what is certain and what is still uncertain as reform is implemented," said Decision Resources Group Vice President Tony Pinsonault. "They represent many of this country's largest payers and healthcare thought leaders and promise to explain much of what is happening in the marketplace by analyzing trends, policy and technologies impacting the managed care industry"
