Dr. Boutros to Speak in Beachwood on Affordable Care Act
MetroHealth President and CEO Dr. Akram Boutros
will participate in a free panel discussion March 19 on the Affordable Care Act.
He will be joined by Dr. Eric Bieber, Chief Medical Officer of University Hospitals; Martin Hauser, CEO of SummaCare; and Dr. David Longworth, Chairman of the Medicine Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.
MetroHealth has been an industry leader in implementing the ACA for the benefit of our community. Our Care Plus (Medicaid Waiver) program insured 30,000+ previously uninsured people, and MetroHealth later earned certification as an Accountable Care Organization.
The event will focus on what's fact and what's fiction as it relates to accountable care organizations, patient centered medical homes and health care reform. It will be moderated by former medical journalist Eileen Korey.
Wednesday, March 19, 7 p.m., at Siegal College in Beachwood
Free and open to the public
