Innovating for Growth – Creating a Healthy Maine
Spotlight on Healthcare Innovation, Technology, and Delivery
Date: Friday, June 18, 2021REGISTER NOW »
The healthcare landscape in Maine and across the nation has undergone dramatic change in the past several decades, and change continues unabated. Join our panel of healthcare experts and practitioners as we examine the current healthcare ecosystem in Maine, and explore innovative approaches to funding, delivery, and development of a more diversified healthcare workforce. Specifically, we’ll look closely at:
- Innovations and disruptions occurring in healthcare that will fundamentally change how healthcare is delivered and paid for
- The current and projected impact of Community Health workers, an emerging peer workforce, on healthcare delivery in Maine
- Addressing the barriers to work faced by foreign trained health professionals and the role they can play in creating a diverse and culturally competent workforce
Participants will hear from Judiann Ferretti Smith, Hanley Center; Peter Hayes, Healthcare Purchaser Alliance of Maine; Ben Hummel, Maine Mobile Health Program, and Sally Sutton, New Mainers Resource Center, Portland Adult Education.
This is one of a series of six Innovating for Growth events being offered between March and June 2021.
COVID 19 Considerations:
~ MDF will use the Governor’s guidelines to ensure the safe delivery of our programs. This includes masks, distancing, testing, vaccinations, date changes, virtual sessions if necessary, cancellations, and other strategies as guidance related to COVID19 is adjusted to match pandemic indicators.
~ If you sign up and pay for a session, series or cohort and must withdraw because of COVID19’s impact on you, your family, or your business, you can choose to pay it forward to future programs or request a pro-rated refund for missed programming.
