Charlotte Chamber summits, health care, healthcare, cost and quality of health care

Friday, August 16, 2013 | The Westin Charlotte

The Chamber hosted the 4th annual Health Care summit on August 16 at the Westin Hotel Charlotte. The event included an update from Marilyn Tavenner, the Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, on the health care exchanges. The topics of innovation and moving from volume to value were key issues discusses at the summit. Attendees also received an overview of health care in the region highlighting the impact of the industry. As an example, health care employment in the Charlotte MSA was 94,236 people in 2012. We look forward to continuing the discussion on health care by launching a Health Services Advisory Council, comprised of chamber members that will work on the interests of the health services industry in the Charlotte region.
