2020 Northern California State of Reform Health Policy Conference @ Sheraton Grand Sacramento
May 12 all-day

he 2020 Northern California State of Reform Health Policy Conference marks the tenth conference we’ve held in California. During that time, we’ve covered several hundreds of stories in California health care, and convened leaders across the spectrum of care – from carriers and providers as well as local and state agencies. Through an intensive stakeholder process, one centered on the input from our Convening Panel, we’ll highlight the unique issues California faces and how stakeholders are improving care while reducing costs.

The State of Reform Health Policy Conference is focused on bridging the gap between health care policy and political reality. Too often, those with good ideas for reforming health care don’t have a solid understanding of how the legislative process works. Those who understand politics don’t always comprehend the intricacies of the health care system.

State of Reform pulls together practitioners, thought leaders, and policy makers – each working to improve our health care system in their own way – into a unified conversation in a single place.

With over 400 C-suite executives and policy-makers in attendance, State of Reform is among the largest gatherings of senior health policy makers and health care executives in Northern California.

Join the conversation with other health care executives and help shape reform May 12, 2020.
