Paying for Healthcare: Critical Implications for Academic Health Centers

The complexities of changing reimbursement systems directly impact the academic health center and its mission. Fluctuating or uncertain margins have very real effects on the pace of innovation and discovery, the ability to develop and deliver the best educational experiences for future healthcare professionals, the capability to provide advanced care for the most complex patients, and the capacity to meet the safety-net needs of our communities. Join academic health center leaders in Dallas, TX, October 7-9, for the 2020 AAHC Annual Meeting, themed Paying for Healthcare: Critical Implications for Academic Health Centers.

Leading experts will provide critical perspectives on how to assess the impact of different proposed reimbursement mechanisms for academic health centers. There will be ample opportunity for peer networking and discussion, including the impact of politics in healthcare as we approach a major election. Make plans now to attend the 2020 AAHC Annual Meeting, October 7-9.
