Atlantic Health Discussions

November 8 – 9, 2013
Middleburg, VA, Virginia

While the nation focused its attention on the rocky implementation of healthcare reform, The Atlantic convened experts in health for two timely panel discussions.

On Friday, November 8th, business leaders and reform experts gathered to discuss how businesses will navigate the Affordable Care Act and manage the costs of care, looking for opportunities to streamline operations and reduce the economic burden of healthcare for businesses and consumers alike.
