It was standing room only during Cooper University Hospital’s Grand Rounds last Thursday as medical students, residents, attending physicians and other healthcare professionals filled the room to participate in the program “Health Care Reform: What Does it Mean to You?”
This special educational event was sponsored by Cooper’s Emergency Medicine Department and moderated by Anthony Mazzarelli, MD, JD, MBE, Medical Director of Emergency Medicine.
A range of topics were addressed and debated, including healthcare policy goals addressed in the new legislation; tort reform; changes in Medicare; and many other topics important to physicians, healthcare employees and hospitals. An engaging question and answer session followed, with numerous thoughtful questions from the audience.
Ground Rounds’ presenters included: Sanford M. Barth, PhD, Graduate School of Population Health, Thomas Jefferson University; Roland D. McDevitt, PhD, Director of Health Care Research, Towers Watson’s Research & Innovation Center, Arlington, VA; Pete Parvis, JD, Healthcare Attorney, Venable LLP; and Marcus Rayner, Executive Director of the New Jersey Lawsuit Reform Alliance (NJLRA).
