The Future of Obamacare — Topic, Ezekiel Emanuel
Donald Trump’s election probably means the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, but lots of questions remain. What does that really mean? Will there be a replacement? What might that look like? With a long record of top-level policy experience, Ezekiel Emanuel has the answers. First, “repeal” means, at the least, the end of the health care exchanges, the coverage mandate, and government subsidies for coverage. Republicans prefer repeal and delay, but this means chaos in the insurance markets and millions of people losing their coverage. What then? Republicans mostly agree on block-granting Medicaid as an alternative, but disagree on the details. Dr. Emanuel can lay out for your audience the principles that will govern the necessary compromise and the elements that will likely define the system we will get. His is an indispensable message for all the stakeholders in health care reform — and that means all of us.
Delivering Healthcare of the Future: The 12 Transformational Practices of Highly Effective Medical Organizations
Physicians and hospitals are always being asked to transform their care, to embrace the triple aim and provide more patient-centric, high –quality care. But what does this mean? How can physician practices and hospital systems become higher-value providers?
After studying approximately 20 successfully transformed, high-performing medical organizations, including both innovative medical organizations and new companies, Dr. Emanuel delineates 12 key practices necessary for transformation. and These practices range from changing how patients are scheduled, registered, and roomed, to incorporating behavioral health services, palliative care, community-based interventions, and lifestyle interventions with standard primary care. Through engaging case studies of patients and medical organizations, Dr. Emanuel illustrates how these transformational practices can be effectively implemented.
Recognizing that no medical organization can implement 12 practices simultaneously, Dr. Emanuel separates the transformational practices into three tiers of differing priority. Using this model, Dr. Emanuel shows how, through the implementation of these 12 practices, a provider or practice can transform to deliver consistently high-quality, low-cost care.
Dr. Emanuel also address on the growing field of virtual medicine. Taking a contrarian perspective, he argues that virtual medicine should not be a central component to a medical organizations’ transformational strategy. Remote monitoring, virtual visits, and other technologies are unlikely to be an effective way to improve quality and lower costs, especially for high-cost patients with chronic conditions.
The applicability of the 12 transformational practices extends beyond use by only providers and health systems. Through case studies, Dr. Emanuel shows that these same practices may also be used by patients to find high-performing physicians and practices for their own personal care.
American health care is changing more rapidly now than it has in decades. What will our health care system look like 5,10 years from now? How will it impact your audience? In this talk, Dr. Emanuel will outline the changing landscape of American healthcare. He will begin with discussing the effects of the health reform on our current system and then will make specific, data-driven predictions about the future of American health care. He will conclude with concrete advice for what your audience can do to adapt to this new environment. There are few people better positioned to project the future of American health care than Dr. Emanuel — and he will draw on his vast experience as a practicing physician, researcher, policymaker, as well as his discussions with thousands of leaders in the health sector to help audiences understand what’s coming next in the health care system.
