SPE02 ANESTHESIOLOGY™ 2014 Opening Session: Are you the anesthesiologist of the future? 

Saturday, October 11, 2014, 10:30 - 11:45 a.m.

The 2014 Opening Session will address game-changing “disruptive innovations” taking place in medicine that present untold opportunities for physician anesthesiologists to become leaders in the coming health care paradigm.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal – one of the freshest, most invigorating minds in the Republican Party and potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate. Gov. Jindal’s successes in Louisiana’s education and ethics reform as well as his transformation of Louisiana’s health care system have made him a highly respected voice in the GOP today.

At the center of this year’s program – and at the center of this new paradigm – is the Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) model of care, which puts physician anesthesiologists at the head of a health care system that seeks a better patient experience, improved outcomes and reduced costs of care.


Jason Hwang, M.D., M.B.A. is coauthor of The Innovator’s Prescription: A Disruptive Solution for Health Care, which was the 2010 Book of the Year recipient of the American College of Healthcare Executives and 2011 winner of the Health Journal Circle Prize for Inspiring Innovation. Dr. Hwang is an internal medicine physician and chief medical officer and co-founder of PolkaDoc, a telehealth company that delivers primary care via smartphone. Mark A. Warner, M.D., 2010 ASA President and Professor of Anesthesiology and Dean, Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education, and Zeev Kain, M.D., M.B.A., Associate Dean for Clinical Operations, UC-Irvine, will present real-world examples of PSH successes and offer insight into how you can incorporate the tenets of the PSH in your own practices.
