Is your laboratory ready to cope with our nation’s economic turmoil? Collapse of the financial markets has already undermined hospital/health system finances. Check out this news story: “U.S. hospital profits fall to zero – Thomson Reuters,” published just days ago on March 2, 2009.
In the midst of this unprecedented economic chaos, the new president and the new Congress are declaring their intent to makeover healthcare according to their vision! Collectively, these developments threaten the financial integrity of every clinical laboratory and pathology group in the United States.
Lab administrators and pathologists need insights, strategies, and practical advice to batten down their laboratories and weather these unprecedented economic storms. You will find all this and more at the 14th annual Executive War College on Laboratory and Pathology Management, scheduled for April 28-29, 2009 at the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana.
New York Times says: “Obama Taps Clinton Ideas but Not Clinton Herself”
New President Barack Obama is not wasting any time when it comes to healthcare reform. Today, he’s convening a healthcare summit in Washington, DC. Invited are stakeholders that range from business and labor groups to providers, health insurers, and consumer groups.
In its prospective coverage of this healthcare summit yesterday, the New York Times used the headline “Obama Taps Clinton Ideas but Not Clinton Herself” . The NYT reporter pointedly observed that a great distance has been maintained between Hillary Clinton and the White House on the subject of healthcare. In fact, the Secretary of State will be in Brussells, Belgium, today—thousands of miles removed from Obama’s health summit!
On the other hand, NYT reporter Sheryl Gay Stolbert observed that Obama is surrounding himself with Clinton advisors, writing “Mr. Obama is at once trying to distance himself from the baggage Mrs. Clinton carries as the architect of that plan, while demonstrating that he has learned from it. He is drawing on the experiences of a host of aides who are Clinton veterans, notably Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff. But he is not relying on Mrs. Clinton herself.”
