NACHC's 2017 Policy & Issues Forum

On March 29, 2017 health cen­ter lead­ers will join deci­sion-mak­ers and pub­lic health lead­ers in the heart of Wash­ing­ton, D.C. to focus on the nation’s health­care. The NACHC Annual Pol­icy and Issues Forum (P & I) is the largest gath­er­ing of com­mu­nity health pro­fes­sion­als in the nation and you are invited to par­tic­i­pate.
This year’s con­fer­ence comes at a time when health pol­icy issues will be the focus of atten­tion and debate as the nation welcomes a new administration, and when bud­getary issues per­co­late over health­care spend­ing. Debate will inten­sify as law­mak­ers at both the national and state lev­els seek to improve the effec­tive­ness of health­care deliv­ery, reform the Afford­able Care Act, con­strain health­care costs, and strengthen Medicare and Med­ic­aid, all while meet­ing increased demands for health ser­vices.

One fact remains certain–health cen­ters will con­front a mine­field of chal­lenges as they con­tinue to carry for­ward their mis­sion and main­tain strong pub­lic sup­port for the Health Cen­ter Pro­gram.
The  P & I Forum  is an oppor­tu­nity for com­mu­nity health lead­ers to voice their per­spec­tives to Mem­bers of Con­gress and offer con­struc­tive solu­tions to the issues at hand. Par­tic­i­pants will also have the oppor­tu­nity to hear from gov­ern­ment offi­cials, some of the nation’s lead­ing health­care experts, and their peers. Top­ics will include the lat­est state-level trends, emerg­ing reg­u­la­tory poli­cies and pro­pos­als that will affect health­care deliv­ery and spend­ing, Med­ic­aid and Medicare reim­burse­ment, work­force, and tech­nol­ogy.
Do not miss this oppor­tu­nity to get the most up to date infor­ma­tion and tools to help your health cen­ter orga­ni­za­tion stay ahead of the game, achieve oper­a­tional excel­lence, and pre­pare to engage pub­lic lead­ers at the local, state, and national level.
Ses­sion high­lights of the P & I include:
  • The impli­ca­tions of the 2016 Pres­i­den­tial elec­tion on the polit­i­cal envi­ron­ment in Con­gress and in the states.
  • Work­ing toward pay­ment reform.
