In this moderated dialogue between two major leaders in healthcare, with audience Q&A, we will explore the implications of macro-level changes occurring in healthcare. These areas of exploration include: 

  • What’s the societal impact of increased insurance enrollment and coverage, in New York and other states?
  • The delivery system itself is changing toward greater integration and coordination, how is that affecting communities?
  • What alterations to the payment system can actually force positive social change and bring down costs?
  • With inpatient care decreasing, what’s a sustainable model for community hospitals?
  • What advances in technology have the best potential to increase patient engagement and how can providers use those technologies to become more patient-focused?

The conversation between the two co-chairs of PNY’s Health Policy Working Group – James Knickman, President & CEO of the New York State Health Foundation and James Tallon, President of the United Hospital Fund – will be a wide-ranging one, with key insights from our moderator, LaRay Brown, Senior Vice President, New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation.

While the conversation will be led by three leaders who are exceptionally well-placed to see far down the healthcare road, Knickman, Tallon and Brown will keep the discussion focused on how these larger trends will be affecting the entire field of philanthropy. From community development to children, youth and family, this program will be of interest to local and national funders interested in how healthcare trends will impact government programs, nonprofits services and cross-sections of vulnerable communities. 

  • Best practices in payment reform from other states; “value” oriented payment approaches to replace “volume” oriented approaches 
  • IT vision for 2020 and the improvement of the patient experience and quality of care 
  • Reducing healthcare access disparities which are largely driven by economic disparities
