Coral Gables, Fla. – Jan. 10, 2017 – More than 700 people are expected to gather at the University of Miami on March 3, 2017 for a daylong conference on the impact of the November 2016 presidential and congressional elections on the business and policy of health care. The conference, The Business of Health Care Post Election, is the sixth in an annual series of premier health care impact conferences hosted by the Center for Health Sector Management and Policy at the university’s School of Business Administration. It will explore the anticipated health care policy changes under the Trump administration, the impact of these changes on the health care sector nationally and in South Florida, and the impact on global health care issues. It will also include a discussion with at least two former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretaries.
- Kathleen Sebelius, Former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services
- James L. Madara, MD, Executive Vice President and CEO, American Medical Association
- Richard Pollack, President and CEO, American Hospital Association

“Just as the Trump administration takes shape in Washington, this conference will bring together the top leaders of virtually every major health care industry association, as well as policy and business leaders to discuss the future of health care policy and its impact on business,” said Steven Ullmann, chairman of the department and director of the Center for Health Sector Management and Policy at the University of Miami School of Business Administration. “This will be a great opportunity to learn about what we can expect the U.S. health care system to look like moving forward and what it means for business.”
The conference, presented by Florida Blue, draws professionals from across business and government. Attendees include those working within the industries of health care, health care delivery and health care policy and administration, as well as business leaders and other professionals in the finance, technology, legal, marketing, government and public policy, and academic sectors.
