Thought leaders to offer valuable insights for health care industry stakeholders

New York, NY (September 3, 2013) Epstein Becker Green announces a three-part webinar series featuring nationally known thought leaders in the health care industry. This complimentary series, sponsored by Epstein Becker Green and EBG Advisors, will examine emerging trends in "population health," a growing area of interest as the industry moves towards the management and support of integrated delivery systems such as accountable care organizations (ACOs).

"It's time we take a serious look at the tools available to be deployed in population health programs," says Mark Lutes, Vice Chairman of Epstein Becker Green, a nationally recognized law firm that specializes in health care. "The webinar series offers an important opportunity to hear from key thought leaders on the tactics delivery systems are considering in assuming responsibility for the health of populations."
