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

Friday, August 15, 2014 | The Westin Charlotte

The chamber's annual Health Care Summit hosted national industry experts and business leaders. This year's theme, "Value Over Volume," explored integrated health care and why Charlotte is rapidly becoming a destination for health care. Health care executives and physicians shared what they are doing to create value, lower costs and generate the highest patient outcomes in the U.S. In addition, a lively panel of health care leaders discussed Charlotte as a health care destination. We presented the Carolinas HealthCare System Healthy Charlotte Awards to Linet Americas, Inc (small company) and Coca Cola Consolidated (large company).
