Amid a healthcare policy overhaul and a presidential race, it’s never been clearer that the healthcare system is broken. But what can we do now as an industry to fix it? That’s the question at the center of this year’s World Health Care Congress, taking place April 16-18 in Washington, D.C.

MedCity Media CEO Chris Seper will bring his knowledge and insight on the changes, challenges and trends in healthcare to the Congress, serving as the chair of the second day of the Hospital and Health Systems Summit.

Now in its ninth year, the World Health Care Congress brings together 1,600 hospital, pharmaceutical, insurance, industry and government leaders from all over the world to discuss the latest technology, trends and political issues in the industry.

As a chair of the Hospital and Health System Summit, Seper will moderate a panel on transforming patient-centered care, featuring executives from Children’s Hospital Boston and Summa Health System, and another on improving operation efficiencies and outcomes.

Seper is a veteran medical and technology reporter whose byline has appeared in The Plain Dealer, Philadelphia Inquirer, The Washington Post and the Christian Science Monitor. He’s also a healthcare entrepreneur, having co-founded MedCity Media in 2008 and served as editor of MedCity News, an online destination for innovation in healthcare, for three years.

“MedCityNews.com is dedicated to obsessively following the trends, innovations and insights that are transforming the healthcare and life science industries,” Seper said. “I am proud to contribute that collective insight to such a prominent event that so much of the industry would do well to attend and listen to.”

Others included in the lineup of presenters for the World Health Care Congress include Aetna CEO Mark T. Bertolini, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, Wellmark CEO John D. Forsyth, American Medical Association President-Elect Jeremy A. Lazarus and Medtronic CEO Omar Ishrak.
