health1Host Jessica Koussevitzky was on hand at The Signature Grand in Davie for the Greater Fort Luaderdale Chamber of Commerce’s Perspectives on Florida’s Healthcare. The purpose of the Perspectives on Florida’s Healthcare Conference was to bring healthcare providers, business owners and those associated with the industry together for an informative exchange of trends, issues and forecasts for this important sector of our economy.

This marquee event began with Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) Secretary Elizabeth Dudek as the keynote speaker for the Opening General Session
followed by two Breakout Tracks—one for business owners and another for providers.

Topics for the breakout sessions were as follows:

Consumer Track
• Understanding the ACA Puzzle
• Consumer Responsibility—what is the employer’s role?

Industry Track
• Medical Marijuana—this is no longer a laughing matter
• The Changing Healthcare Delivery System

The Opening General Session and Breakout Tracks were followed by our Excellence in Healthcare Awards Luncheon, where individuals and businesses that have excelled in the industry were recognized. Awardees were reviewed by our distinguished panel of experts in a nomination format. All nominees will be recognized at the luncheon.
