Donna E. Shalala
University of Miami
During her eight-year tenure as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Shalala directed the welfare reform process, made health insurance available to an estimated 3.3 million, raised child immunization rates to the highest levels in history, led major reforms of the FDA’s drug approval process and food safety system, revitalized the National Institutes of Health, and directed a major management and policy reform of Medicare. In this address, Shalala will show how healthcare organizations can navigate the challenges of new quality measures, accountability requirements, and payment structures, while addressing an aging population and newly insured individuals due to the Affordable Care Act.
