Hillary Clinton’s Keynote attracted a full crowd of 6,000 people to the Valencia Ballroom in the convention center. She discussed a number of items, from healthcare reform to her experiences as Secretary of State. Clinton identified that there is a need for more transparency within healthcare, and one of our goals as an industry should be to improve coordination and communication across all providers that are responsible for a patient’s health. Additionally, we need to help both practitioners and consumers stay informed about patient care practices.
Hillary explained that the Affordable Care Act has liberated people from staying with a job solely for healthcare purposes; Americans no longer need to rely on corporations to provide their health insurance needs. Our country is on the right track for further improving our healthcare system, but if things aren’t working we need people of good faith to come together and make evidence-based changes.
