As Leading Voice of Healthcare Outcomes, Reed Tuckson Sees Health through the Eyes of the Patient and Physician

Dr. Tuckson, a renowned national health expert, to bring insights on comprehensive, multi-disciplinary health care system to Hartford on Sept. 30

Hartford, Conn. (August (TBD), 2014) – In his 35 years as a health professional, Dr. Reed Tuckson, managing partner of Tuckson Health Connections, has seen many facets of the health care system. Named one of the “50 Most Influential Physician Executives in Health Care” by Modern Physician, Dr. Tuckson’s career spans the insurance, nonprofit, government and academic sectors. He founded Tuckson Health Connections to improve people’s quality of life – a vision he believes will be achieved by assembling all available health assets, engaging in best health behaviors and sharing innovations in both prevention and medical care delivery.

Dr. Tuckson is the former commissioner of public health for the District of Columbia and formerly served as senior vice president of Professional Standards for the American Medical Association (AMA). He is also the author of The Doctor in the Mirror. He will discuss his experiences and continued work during the Connecticut Health Council’s “The Evolving Health Care Landscape: The Challenges and Opportunities for Collaborative Actions to Enhance Outcomes” event on Tuesday, September 30th from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at the Hartford Marriott Downtown, 200 Columbus Boulevard in Hartford.

“In an era of mergers and acquisitions, integration is an increasingly important topic for health care providers,” said Amy Cunningham, the Council’s executive director. The MetroHartford Alliance provides operational support for the Council. “We’re excited to host Dr. Tuckson and learn how his diverse experiences in the health care industry have shaped his vision for an integrated delivery system as well as the anticipated challenges and opportunities a more integrated service delivery system could provide for Connecticut’s health care industry.”

Tickets for “The Evolving Health Care Landscape” are $25 per person for Founding Partners and $50 per person for non-members. To learn more and to register, visit: www.cthealthcouncil.com.
