The healthcare landscape in Maine and across the nation has undergone dramatic change in the past several decades, and change continues unabated. Join MDF’s panel of healthcare experts and practitioners as we examine the current healthcare ecosystem in Maine, and explore innovative approaches to funding, delivery, and development of a more diversified healthcare workforce. Specifically, we’ll look closely at: innovations and disruptions occurring in healthcare that will fundamentally change how healthcare is delivered and paid for; the current and projected impact of Community Health workers, an emerging peer workforce, on healthcare delivery in Maine; addressing the barriers to work faced by foreign trained health professionals and the role they can play in creating a diverse and culturally competent workforce. Participants will hear from Judiann Ferretti Smith, Hanley Center; Peter Hayes, Healthcare Purchaser Alliance of Maine; Ben Hummel, Maine Mobile Health Program, and Sally Sutton, New Mainers Resource Center, Portland Adult Education.
