Manasquan NJ USA -- October 16, 2008: Facing a new presidential administration, the financial crisis that is impacting organizations and individuals alike, as well as the ongoing challenges in the healthcare industry — reimbursement rates, quality improvement and outcomes, consumer-driven healthcare, patient empowerment and pay-for-performance — the healthcare industry can expect a challenging year ahead.
The economic downturn will have far-reaching impacts on the industry, from margin pressures, to access to capital to patient care-seeking behaviors that you will have to include in your 2009 planning. To help you and your organization in your strategic planning for the new year, join us the day after the election for our fifth annual look ahead at the healthcare industry.
During Healthcare Trends and Forecasts in 2009, a 90-minute webinar on November 5, 2008, two healthcare industry experts will examine the trends that will continue to impact the healthcare industry in 2009 and how organizations can best prepare themselves for the changes that will come with the new administration.
