AMCF, the Association of Management Consulting Firms, will host a Healthcare Leadership Forum on Friday, September 7th, 2012, at Vanderbilt’s Owen School of Management in Nashville, TN. It will be hosted and sponsored by Vanderbilt’s Owen School of Management and The Saint Consulting Group on the Owen campus.

The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding the healthcare reform law means millions of uninsured people will gain access to healthcare. Caring for the newly insured – and paying for that care — will have profound implications for providers of all types and the economy overall. Additionally, the August 2011 Budget Control Act all but ensures that a healthcare bubble is poised to burst sometime after sequestration hits in 2013.

Yet even as healthcare companies contend with unparalleled uncertainty, there is still the opportunity for the best companies to shine. The laws of business dictate that those companies who understand how to balance quality of service, operational efficiencies, and cost control will thrive now and in the future.

AMCF’s Healthcare Leadership Forum will focus on how companies can do that–and why they must.

Among the specific topics that will be addressed:

  • The Drivers of Healthcare’s Shifting Value Equation
  • Managing Risk in a Fragmented Delivery System
  • M&A and Developing Fully Integrated Delivery Networks
  • Consultants and Providers: Partners for Better Care

Speakers include: Jim Cooper, U.S. Representative for Tennessee’s 5th congressional district;  Herb Fritch, President, HealthSpring (Cigna); and Larry van Horn, Executive Director Health Affairs, Owen School of Management.

The event is designed for healthcare professionals, management consultants, and thought leaders.  It will be held from 9-5, followed by a networking session. For more information and to register, please go to
