Precision Medicine Roundtable February 2019mdpi.png
 

You are invited to participate as an Observer during the National Thought Leaders in Precision Medicine Roundtable on February 1, 2019 in Washington, DC on the topic, Filling the Accountability Void: Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the All of Us Research Program.

The National Minority Quality Forum and Dr. Elizabeth Ofili of the Morehouse School of Medicine are partnering to convene this Roundtable in recognition of our shared commitment to creating and advancing science to sustain the health of our collective communities of concern. This Roundtable is the next step in operationalizing recommendations for HBCU engagement from Thought Leaders Roundtables that were convened in February and June of 2018, including designing and conducting research that is informed by All of Us participant data, developing and reporting on population-specific metrics, and participating as All of Us enrollment sites. 

As an Observer, you will be introduced by Dr. Ofili at the beginning of the meeting, and join us for breakfast and lunch. We hope you will be able to join us. An agenda and briefing document will be made available in January. A final written report of this Roundtable will be submitted to the All of Us Research Program no later than February 28, 2019.

Corporate Roundtable to Address Critical Challenges in the Era of Health Care Reform

Corporate Roundtable to Address Critical Challenges in the Era of Health Care Reform

  • Ritz Carlton Hotel Washington D.C. (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

National Minority Quality Forum convenes Corporate Roundtable to address critical challenges in the era of health care reform

Corporate Roundtable Flyer
 

In this era of healthcare reform, there are a number of barriers and drivers that will impact industry’s consumer and healthcare professional business models.  The business imperative will be having the knowledge and capacity to adapt to these influencers –    the development of national quality standards; the entrée of emerging markets; and the introduction of nascent technologies.

From our perspective, we ask: “How will consumer demand for healthcare services be impacted by healthcare reform?” With 38 million new consumers coming into the market, many of whom are minorities with diseases such as diabetes, and with rising senior demand for health care, we are asking corporate leaders who must serve these growing markets to look into the future with us.  As such, we are convening our annual corporate roundtable meeting – “Critical Challenges in the Era of Healthcare Reform” – to provide us with the insights needed to adjust to the demands of a changing healthcare system.   These insights will guide us as we develop initiatives and programs to support physicians’ efforts to enroll emerging consumers into the healthcare system


Event Details

September 10, 2012 | 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

24 & M Streets NW, Washington D.C.

Address:

24 & M Streets NW, Washington D.C.


Meeting objectives

  • To assess how the development, testing, and implementation of evidence-based performance measures will influence the delivery of healthcare

  • To identify opportunities for public-private sector collaboration in light of the demands that emerging healthcare consumers will have on industry, physicians, hospitals, and payers.

  • To learn about the development of innovative technologies designed to improve the delivery of healthcare information

Meeting deliverables

The information derived from the corporate roundtable meeting will support a publication strategy designed to facilitate the enrollment of emerging consumers into the healthcare system.  The publication strategy will inform how healthcare reform will impact utilization and consumption patterns, costs, and outcomes within specific geographical areas and populations;  will help to assess the ‘value’ of the emerging healthcare consumers and their pending impact with healthcare professionals; and provide a rationale for healthcare professionals to expand their patient base to include the previously uninsured ‘emerging consumers.’
