One year into the administration of President Donald J. Trump, clarity around U.S. health care reform has yet to emerge. As the president and Congress consider various paths forward, the University of Miami has invited industry luminaries to discuss trends, possibilities, and opportunities at The Business of Health Care: What’s Next?, the seventh in the university’s series of premier health care conferences.  The conference will take place in Miami on Friday, April 13, 2018 at the Watsco Center, 1245 Dauer Drive, Coral Gables, FL 33146.

The Business of Health Care conference is organized by the Center for Health Sector Management and Policy and the University of Miami Business School. The full-day event is expected to draw some 700 attendees from the health care, health care delivery and health care policy and administration industries, as well as business leaders and other professionals in the finance, technology, legal, marketing, government and public policy, and academic sectors.

“This year’s conference offers a unique opportunity to hear from some of the nation’s best thinkers about the profound changes coming in health care,” said Steven G. Ullmann, director of the UM Center for Health Sector Management and Policy. “With this knowledge, conference participants will be in a better position to make positive impacts on the quality of care, control costs and ultimately leaving with a competitive advantage.”
