What health leaders are saying about State of Reform
There’s nothing like it–hearing directly from the people running the systems and doing the work … and to understand what the unique challenges are here, and really help the state facilitate progress.
Just as important as the keynote speakers and the breakout sessions is the networking that happens behind the scenes.
What do our providers think? What do our consumer advocacy organizations think? This conference really brings all those people together in one space, which means I don’t have to go across the whole state trying to figure that out.
We really appreciate that State of Reform brings together all sorts of disparate groups to have healthy dialogue. They can break out into different sessions that really interest them. It’s a really great space for we health policy nerds to [discuss] where our next steps need to go.
It gives us all a forum to come together, discuss the critical issues, and it really prepares us to just advocate for the things that we all share a common interest in.
There are a lot of new solutions that are out there. We need to make sure that these new players are talking together, and State of Reform is exactly the kind of place that facilitates those conversations.
