The American Journal of Managed Care is attending this week’s U.S. News & World Report Hospital of Tomorrow conference in Washington, D.C. The groundbreaking 3-day event features top hospital executives and healthcare visionaries as they address the critical challenges facing health systems, discuss how leading hospitals are creating solutions, and examine the pioneering best practices that are emerging in response.

The featured speakers at this prestigious event include Jeffrey Bokser, MHA, vice president for safety, security and emergency services at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, the nation’s largest not-for-profit, non-sectarian hospital; Toby M. Cosgrove, MD, CEO, Cleveland Clinic; and Tom Frieden, MD, MPH, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“Hospitals are at the center of a painful, messy, yet necessary disruption of the health care industry. The decisions made by leading institutions over the next year or so will have a profound effect on many lives,” said Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer, U.S. News & World Report, in a release statement.

U.S. News & World Report worked with an advisory council comprising the nation’s leading and most innovative hospitals to shape the Hospital of Tomorrow event. It will focus on issues such as population health, readmissions, Big Data, electronic health records, personalized medicine, and the Affordable Care Act.

“Both the speakers and the audience are well-suited to probe these challenges and to see if consensus solutions can emerge,” added Mr Kelly.
