BUFFALO, N.Y. — As the debate over health care reform continues, the region’s top health care leaders will share their insights during a panel discussion hosted by the University at Buffalo School of Management on April 24 on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
What: “After the Affordable Care Act: A Nonpartisan Conversation on the Future of Health Care” will tackle the wide-reaching impact of the Affordable Care Act — and its uncertain future — on patients, medical professionals, employers and taxpayers. Panelists will share their expert insights on the law’s strengths and problems, as well as how any potential repeal could affect Medicaid, prescription drug costs, the individual and employer insurance markets, and the shift toward value-based payment models.
The panel discussion is the inaugural event in the UB School of Management’s Business and Society series and part of its growing portfolio of health care management programs, partnerships and events. The school offers dual and collaborative programs that combine an MBA with another graduate degree in several health-related fields, an Accelerated MBA for Medical Residents and Fellows program, an MBA health care management concentration and a variety of non-credit-bearing programs.
