The Sedgwick County Health Care Roundtable is sponsoring its 35th annual seminar, along with the Wichita Business Coalition on Health Care (WBCHC) for employers and insurance brokers interested in bringing the purchaser’s voice on employee health brought to the table. Participants are eager to learn more about managing health care costs as they do other aspects of business.
Each year the Roundtable organizes this seminar to establish meaningful dialogue and experience sharing among professionals representing business, industry, organized labor, hospitals, physicians, medical groups and the insurance community. This year there is a joint effort between the Roundtable and WBCHC to get create and environment to help enhance the education of the community.
The seminar provides a forum to discuss local, state and federal health care-related legislation; to access resources for new concepts, ideas and approaches to medical cost management; to facilitate interactions among the various interest groups; and to promote the community working together to achieve better health, better care at a lower cost.
It offers a unique opportunity for local business and community leaders, employers, physicians, and brokers/consultants to consider the “big picture” of health care dynamics, particularly the relationship between policy and practice and its impact on the commercial market.
Registration fees are $100 per person for the day, which includes materials, lunch and CEU’s.
