Thompson’s talk, which will cover the anticipated effects of the upcoming elections, will be followed by a panel of health care leaders, such as Randy Oostra, president and CEO of ProMedica health system, Toledo, Ohio, talking about strategies and tactics for developing a culture of innovation.

The metrics discussion includes panelists Nancy Howell Agee, president and CEO of Carilion Clinic, Ann Scott Blouin, R.N., executive vice president of customer relations at the Joint Commission, Oakbrook Terrace, Ill., and Brent Wallace, M.D., chief medical officer of Intermountain Healthcare, Salt Lake City.
