He’ll also discuss different ways that providers can work in their communities, alone and in partnership, to deliver better healthcare, improve the health of family caregivers, and help the healthcare system lower costs. His Experience: During his 22-plus year career, he served as the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; founder and CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (a nonprofit dedicated to improving healthcare around the world); a practicing pediatrician; and a professor at the Harvard Medical School. 18 NewsLine
