Healthcare Leader of the Year Program

Employer - Doctor Reception

Friday, October 29, 2021 in Clarksville, MD

For over a decade the American College of Healthcare Trustees has sought improvement in decision making, ethics, and leadership among professionals in the health market. This goal has led ACHT to support increased price transparency - and the entrepreneurs who manifest that improved market. We are pleased to share some of the footage from this event.

Countless practitioners lament their reliance on both employment in hospitals or reliance on insurance reimbursement to maintain their livelihood. Employers and individuals are stressed about insurance that costs too much and handcuffs choices via networks that exclude the best doctors. Plenty of Thought Leaders - and entrepreneurs - have promoted price competition as a way to restore the doctor-patient relationship, and our guest speakers will provide a path forward for attendees who would like to upgrade health plan quality while saving money and reducing red tape.

Speakers include:

  • Jawad Arshad, emergency physician, and creator of the ASCEND technology award-winning WoW cash appointments app - taking the surprise out of billing and the hassle out of patient interactions
  • Kelly Webb, marketing director for Exclusive Surgeries Solutions, offering workers concierge access to 2,500 vetted surgeons, offering surgeons immediate payment, and assuring employers one, bundled price
  • Cristin Dickerson, MD, whose 1,400 Green Imaging centers offer true, market-based pricing while boosting quality

Attending also will be benefits experts, including Charles Frohman of the Forbes-featured health plan upgrade for employers and individuals; and Carl Schuessler, a leading benefits advisor using direct contracting to give CEOs the unthinkable - annual cost savings with ever happier employees, Jodi Lyons of Senior Sherpa, and Dr. Marlene Wust-Smith of Physician Outlook Magazine.

If you want to know what the future will bring, this is your sneak peek to our future.

We are working on where we will hold our next event and will announce it in January 2022. We look forward to seeing you there.

Very truly yours,

David Levien, MD,MBA,FACS

President and CEO - American College of Healthcare Trustees
