Registration Open for Rural Health Care Symposium
Agenda to focus on rural opportunities under ACA

The annual Rural Health Care Symposium will be held Feb. 27-28, 2014, at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego. This year’s event features a distinguished faculty that will provide inspiration, information and tools to help rural leadership transform hospital operations to meet health care delivery under the Affordable Care Act. New this year, first-day sessions will incorporate information on the role of trustees into all topics. CEOs should plan to bring their board chairs and trustees to learn about topics such as the power and potential of partnerships, community care organizations in rural markets, and how to develop the vital skills and expertise to be transformative leaders. Second-day sessions will offer an update on the progress of Covered California, how to maximize the potential of telehealth, and the annual CEO roundtable discussion.
