Charlotte, N.C.-based Premier healthcare alliance will host a series of Healthcare Reform Executive Briefings to prepare providers for the implications of healthcare reform, led by health policy experts who will break down the provisions of the bill.

The sessions, open to both Premier member and non-member hospitals and non-acute care healthcare providers, will provide detailed analysis of the reform bill in the areas of payment, compliance, and hospital policies. While the reform law reduces hospital payments by about $200 billion over 10 years, the law imposes new requirements that tie additional reimbursement dollars to improve quality and clinical processes, prevent harm in the areas of healthcare-associated infections and hospital-acquired conditions, and reduce readmissions.

Briefing dates, locations and local times are:

May 17 – Chicago from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

May 26 – Dallas from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

June 24 – Charlotte, N.C. from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. July 8 – San Diego from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Premier is a performance improvement alliance of more than 2.300 U.S. hospitals and over 66,000 other healthcare sites.
