CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Accretive Health (OTC Pink: ACHI) President and Chief Executive Officer, Emad Rizk, M.D., was a featured panelist at the 4th Annual Becker's Hospital Review CEO Roundtable + CFO/CIO Roundtable. This industry-leading conference was held at the Ritz Carlton in Chicago, IL from November 18-19, 2015. Dr. Rizk joined an esteemed, all-CEO panel on “The Biggest Challenges and Opportunities for Hospitals and Health Systems”.
With dramatic changes underway in healthcare requiring the entire industry to think and act in new ways, Dr. Rizk shared, “While these changes are varied and complex, what they all have in common is that this is the first time the patient is acting as a true consumer. One example is in the area of price transparency. The growth of high-deductible health plans places increased financial responsibility on the consumer, creating confusion about reimbursement and coverage. At the point of care, providers will need to have more information to help clarify a patient’s health coverage, and the technology to calculate and break down an accurate, understandable estimate of what the patient’s care will cost before it is delivered.”
The 2015 Becker's Hospital Review 4th Annual CEO Roundtable + CFO/CIO Roundtable attracts attendees and speakers that are among the smartest people in the hospital industry today. Focusing on the core issues, opportunities, and strategies important to hospital and health system CEO’s, CFO’s, and CIO’s, the Roundtable provides a unique forum to share expert views from all sides of the healthcare world.
