Discussion topics include an introduction and overview of the effects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA); population health; the insurance industry; and information technology and healthcare regulations and metrics. The discussion will end with an open question and answer session.


Dr. Samuel Hammerman, senior vice president and chief medical officer of Select Medical, will moderate the panel discussion. Other panel members include Carnelio Catena, chief executive officer, Wyoming Valley Healthcare System; Denise S. Cesare, FACHE, president and chief executive officer, Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania; Pamela M.
