Pinal County Arizona Health Care Delivery System – 2008 Conference

Last Friday I was the keynote speaker for the Pinal County (Arizona) Health Care Delivery System – 2008 Conference. The conference had an interesting mix of speakers (see agenda).

Speakers included Lisa Garcia, the Assistant County Manager of Health and Human Services, two academics from the University of Arizona (Gary Hart and Keith Joiner), and the CEO of a local community college (Dennis Jenkins). Also, CEOs of three hospitals (Casa Grande, Banner Ironwood, Northwest Medical Center Oro Valley), representatives from Blue Cross Blue Shield Arizona and the Director of the Arizona Medicaid and SCHIP program (AHCCCS) also presented.

My talk was titled “Health Care Economics: An Introduction.” The power point presentation is available here. The other speakers presentations are available here.
