Ellen-Breslin-150-200Health Management Associates senior consultant Ellen Breslin will speak at the Lunch Keynote on Tuesday, May 17 from 11:45 AM – 1:00 PM. Her address is titled “A Simple Message to Home Care & Hospice in an Era of Major Transformation.”

Successfully navigating this era of health transformation requires providers to stay focused on the simple questions: How can I improve outcomes and quality of life for my clients? Can I measure the effects in terms of quality and costs? What kind of value-based partnerships and arrangements would work best for me? Ellen will discuss opportunities to participate in value-based purchasing and use best practices to set, measure, and achieve quality of life goals.

Breslin is a seasoned consultant with 30 years of experience in health policy. She has provided expertise to states, health plans and providers on major state and federal payment and delivery reforms including the Medicare-Medicaid Capitated Financial Alignment Initiative.
