Healthcare's Future: Realizing the Promise

The 5th Annual Health Administration Symposium at Saint Joseph's College of Maine is scheduled for

July 23 through 27, 2012

In keeping with this year's 100 year anniversary of the college, this year the symposium will be bigger and better than ever!

Sr. Carol Keehan, CEO of the Catholic Health Association is scheduled to give us an update of health care reform.

Dr. Merrill Matthews will be speaking about the ethics of health care reform.

Keith Baldwin will be discussing physician integration in light of recent mandates of health care reform.

We have also planned three panel discussions:
  • Steve Chies, Keith Baldwin and Dr. Doug Salvador will be taking on the difficult issue of preventing hospital readmissions.
  • Debra Kramlich, Deb Palmer and Lois Skillings will be applying the concepts of evidence-based practice to interdisciplinary leadership in a real world context, and
  • Ben Sawyer, Tom Brunelle, Jon Abeles and Dr. Inron Androbi will be tackling the topic of really improving operational performance in health care organizations.
New this year, we will also be offering three tracks of breakout sessions!  One track will feature topics specific to the field of radiologic technology, another will focus on issues related to long-term care administration and the last will focus on interdisciplinary leadership.

More details will follow, but you will definitely want to reserve the date!!!  You are welcome to attend the entire week-long symposium on beautiful Sebago Lake or you can come for one or more days!
