The Future of Healthcare Symposium

Healthcare Symposium

Executive Education Programs

The Pepperdine Graziadio Future of Healthcare Symposium has very quickly established itself as one of the premier healthcare events in the Country focused on the ever changing evolution of healthcare in America. Healthcare spending represents a large portion of our overall spend and since the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, change has never been faster and the stakes have never been greater.

Join us as we discuss the impact of the healthcare industry's irreversible migration away from legacy fee-for-service and volume-based reimbursement models to value-based payments. Value-based payments are designed to align economic incentives with the delivery of higher quality and more cost-effective care and the push from fee-for-service to fee-for-value results in more dollars being tied to quality and other value-based initiatives. This results in a significant impact on healthcare providers, consumers and insurance plans. During the symposium, you will hear from industry leaders how this evolution will impact healthcare stakeholders.
