Wonderful Guest EMPH Lecturer This Weekend


One of the best aspects of the EMPH program is that it provides us with the opportunity to have industry leading guest lecturers.  This weekend we were fortunate to have Richard A. Barasch the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Universal American Corp.  who lead an interactive discussion with our cohort on the rapidly changing world of healthcare under the Affordable Care Act and how his company is taking advantage of opportunities to be a leader in delivering very cost effective high quality health care.  Universal American is a specialty health and life insurance holding company with an emphasis on providing a broad array of health insurance and managed care products and services to individuals covered by Medicare and Medicaid. The company has joined with primary-care provider groups, hospitals, integrated delivery systems, and a variety of other health care providers to form thirty-one Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).
