2016 Com­mu­nity Health Insti­tute & EXPO

Hyatt Regency Chicago, Chicago, IL

August 28–30, 2016

The NACHC Com­munthe beanity Health Insti­tute (CHI) and Expo is the largest annual gath­er­ing of health cen­ter clin­i­cians, exec­u­tives, con­sumer board mem­bers along with Health Cen­ter Con­trolled Net­works and Sate/Regional Pri­mary Care Asso­ci­a­tions. The con­fer­ence (August 28–30, 2016) is sched­uled to kick off in Chicago at a time when health cen­ters are front and cen­ter in the trans­for­ma­tion of health­care. Health cen­ter lead­ers are look­ing to the future focused on the med­ical and man­age­ment teams needed for tomorrow’s health­care – the col­lab­o­ra­tive part­ner­ships that can spur inno­va­tions – and the tech­nolo­gies to improve effi­ciency and cost effec­tive­ness in the deliv­ery of care. They also will focus on approach­ing change and the impact of new pay­ment sys­tems and mod­els of care. The CHI will posi­tion health cen­ters for sus­tained lead­er­ship in the com­ing years. Par­tic­i­pants will hear NACHC lead­er­ship, gov­ern­ment offi­cials, health­care indus­try lead­ers and other spe­cial guests speak to the chal­lenges and oppor­tu­ni­ties that lie ahead, includ­ing up-do-date infor­ma­tion on pol­icy shifts, fed­eral reg­u­la­tory changes, fund­ing and pro­posed leg­is­la­tion.  The national con­fer­ence will fos­ter oppor­tu­ni­ties for health cen­ter pro­fes­sion­als and con­sumer board mem­bers to net­work, share per­spec­tives and best prac­tices, and stay com­pet­i­tive and rel­e­vant in the health­care mar­ket­place.  A host of edu­ca­tional ses­sions and events will be offered on major top­ics rel­e­vant to the oper­a­tions and gov­er­nance of health cen­ters.
