Where: Grand Hyatt, San Francisco, CA
Through a national network of locally governed regional entities, the Center for Healthcare Transparency (CHT) will ensure that information on the relative cost and quality of healthcare services is available to 50 percent of the U.S. population by 2020. CHT is developing a five-year implementation plan to identify the resources, partnerships and infrastructure needed to achieve its vision. Part of this plan involves building a national network of entities to publicly report on quality, cost and patient experience in a consistent way across the US.
About the Event

The purpose of the Forum is to gather feedback on CHT’s draft implementation plan and to identify possible candidates to participate in CHT’s proposed network and national strategy for transparency. The event will include plenary sessions lead by innovation leaders and smaller working groups for deeper discussion.
