Transformational Healthcare - How Business Leaders Can Get Ahead of the Curve in a Post- Healthcare Reform World

In the post-reform world of healthcare, American businesses will be among the most heavily impacted by the new legislation. From new regulations and compliance issues to dealing with potential caps on premiums, many businesses may already be significantly behind the curve on managing the impact to their business and to their employees.  In this presentation, Christine Dumas can help you navigate the complexities of this new legislation and share with your human resource and business leaders what they need to do now to prepare for the coming change.

Our country is at a critical juncture regarding the health of our citizens and the transformation of our health care system as a result of the passage of healthcare reform legislation.  As research and science lead to groundbreaking cures and new live-saving treatments, doctors, patients, human resource and health care administrators are all increasingly frustrated by the factors that drive up costs and limit the availability of the highest quality, state of the art health care.

Drawing on her experience as a nationally recognized medical correspondent with a degree in Economics, a nationally recognized expert on corporate workplace wellness and as a senior advisor to the Center for Health Transformation in Washington DC, Dr. Christine Dumas covers the leading edge trends in the U.S. health care system and the changes that will come as a result of the new legislation.  She covers how these trends will transform our health care system and the role that corporate America will play.

What Christine knows from her years covering healthcare is that promoting better health means more than just passing new healthcare legislation.  To get a healthier America and a healthier workforce we need to transform the way Americans think about their health.  She discusses a leadership-driven model for a healthcare system of the future that we can embark on today - one that is patient-centered and rich in innovation.  She outlines in detail what the American consumer really wants from their healthcare experiences.  She provides her audiences with insight on the critical issues that business leaders and human resource managers will face when dealing with the new healthcare landscape as a result of the new legislation, while outlining specific trends that will lead to better care and a healthier America.

Creating Your Best Life

In her refreshingly entertaining and straightforward style, Christine Dumas shares the candid advice that has motivated her throughout her career, inspiring audiences to take charge of their life, career, health and happiness.

Drive, determination and knowing where you want life to take you are part of the equation for success. At each step of the way, Dumas emphasizes the importance of never letting traditional expectations keep you from having your preferred life -- one that is custom-made for you. To say that she thinks "outside the box" doesn't begin to describe her intuitive, innovative and entertaining presentation for everything from financing a college education to a business, to doing whatever you feel passionate about, to seamlessly changing course in life as opportunities present themselves -- allowing you to create the very best life possible. Your audience will be entertained and inspired with a memorable presentation that will change the lives of those in attendance.
