Among the certainties in healthcare is the constant pace of change and its intensity.  This year’s annual research symposium builds upon the AMCP Foundation’s landmark research focusing on emerging trends  as part of  a new comprehensive study of the factors leading health system change and their impact on varied stakeholders.


At the symposium a significant focus will address those factors that have the potential for disruption of healthcare services, and implications if stakeholders fail to address the significance of the emerging trends.
