2016 Small or Rural Hospital Conference

The theme for this year’s conference, attended by small and large hospitals alike, is Beyond the Four Walls.  We will explore various aspects of population health and the implications it has for the delivery of care, the way hospitals are paid for that care and the increased emphasis on community health and wellness.  Thursday’s opening speaker, Brian Silverstein, MD, is a national healthcare expert with extensive experience in population health. His session will set the stage by focusing on key strategic and operational elements, including local market considerations. Also on Thursday is Amy Boutwell, MD, MPP, a practicing provider and national expert on care transformation. Her presentation will focus on building successful partnerships, both across settings of care and with communities.

Friday’s session will examine several issues that affect community health. The first is the drug epidemic occurring in Maine and across the country. Thomas Delahanty, the United States Attorney for the District of Maine, will speak about current efforts in Maine to combat the problem. He’ll be followed by a panel of experts and robust discussion. Finally, Victoria Rogers, MD, director of the Let’s Go! program, will lead a discussion on ways hospitals across the state are improving wellness through the promotion of healthy eating and active living.
