We're looking forward to this year's keynote speaker lineup.
We're delighted to announce that Len Nichols, PhD, former Senior Advisor for Health Policy at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in the Clinton Administration, will be a keynote speaker at VCC17.
As the future of healthcare reforms such as the Affordable Care Act continue to be fiercely debated in Washington, Nichols, one of the most highly regarded policy advisors to Congress and the White House, will discuss the current options on the table and the impact each of them will have on healthcare today.
Len M. Nichols has been the Director of the Center for Health Policy Research and Ethics (CHPRE) and a Professor of Health Policy at George Mason University since March 2010. He has been intimately involved in health reform debates, policy development, and communication with the media and policy makers for more than 20 years, after serving as Senior Advisor for Health Policy at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in the Clinton Administration. Since that time, he has testified frequently before Congress and state legislatures, published extensively, and spoken to a wide range of hospital associations, physician groups, and health policy leadership forums around the country. After OMB, Nichols was a Principal Research Associate at the Urban Institute, Vice President of the Center for Studying Health System Change, and Director of the Health Policy Program at the New America Foundation. In addition to his positions at GMU, Nichols is on the Board of Directors of the National Committee for Quality Assurance and was recently appointed by the Comptroller General to serve on the Physician-Focused Payment Model Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC), created by the MACRA legislation of 2015. Nichols was an advisor to the Virginia Health Reform Initiative and is now the payment reform advisor to the Virginia Center for Health Innovation. As he came to focus his research more on payment and delivery reform, Nichols was an Innovation Advisor to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation at CMS in 2012, and is now the Principal Investigator on PCMH evaluation studies as well as more general ways to use payment and delivery reform to achieve Triple Aim and health equity goals. Nichols’ first job was teaching economics at Wellesley College from 1980-1991, where he became Associate Professor and Economics Department Chair, after receiving his PhD in Economics from the University of Illinois in 1980. He earned his BA from Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas, and his MA in Economics from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.
