Abstract: In view of the epochal changes in the US healthcare system already underway as a result of the Affordable Care Act, this Topical Meeting is a roll-up-your-sleeves working group to address the questions: What kind(s) of model(s) of the US healthcare system do business, government, the consumer, and the healthcare system itself want and need? What are the desired level (or levels) of granularity for particular stakeholders and particular needs? Are there the interest, capability, and support among SFI Business Network members and their collaborators to embark upon one or more such modeling efforts? The keynote speaker will be noted healthcare expert Stephen Hyde, author of "Cured! The Insider's Handbook for Health Care Reform". Stephen has been a public company CEO and board member of numerous health care companies, as well as a federal managed care regulator, insurance expert, medical group CEO, actuary, consultant, and entrepreneur.
