Senators Rockefeller, Hatch and Wyden, and Congressmen Stark, Waxman and Camp to Speak at Health Reform Conference
Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) - April 8, 2008 - Washington, DC

Atlantic Information Services, Inc. is pleased to announce a unique two-day conference, Health Reform and the 2008 Elections: What’s Ahead for Health Care Access, Delivery and Financing, being held on Capitol Hill in Washington on July 10-11.

The debate about how to fix the health care system will reach a fever-pitch when the 111th Congress and new President begin their work in 2009. And the chances of major health system reform will be greater than they’ve been for 15 years, with potentially staggering implications for everyone, from provider to patient to payer.

This ground-breaking program features six top health policy makers from Capitol Hill, health aides for the Clinton, McCain and Obama presidential campaigns, leaders from prominent health business organizations, health policy analysts, and health reform advisors from California, Indiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Vermont.
