SCI Solutions Announces 2013 Client Innovation Summit Keynote Speaker David M. Walker

The CEO of the Comeback America Initiative Will Address the Impact of Financial Reform on the Healthcare Industry at SCI's Annual Client Innovation Summit October 15, 2013 at Chateau Elan in Atlanta

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - June 13, 2013) - SCI Solutions, a leading provider of orders/referral management and rules-based enterprise scheduling software solutions, today announced that David M. Walker, former Comptroller General for the United States, will offer the keynote address at their annual Client Innovation Summit on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at Chateau Élan in Braselton, GA.

In his address, "Can we afford the Affordable Care Act?" David Walker will guide SCI clients through a discussion of the nation's financial shape and how healthcare affects the country's current economic state. Offering his thought leadership perspective on what the hospital C-suite leaders should be thinking about, Walker will address the Affordable Care Act and the impacts, both positive and negative, on hospitals across America.

"Performance metrics are as critical for our government as they are for business, particularly for healthcare systems that are looking at a shift from volume-based to value-based care," Walker said. "Healthcare organizations must take action now to validate the returns they are making on their investments, especially in the Healthcare IT space. Clearly, the Affordable Care Act does not go far enough to address spiraling healthcare costs that are major contributors to the nation's mounting debt. Hospitals must be able to prove that they are committed to doing everything possible to lower the healthcare costs while still providing quality care."

One of America's most capable, candid and independent financial experts, Walker mounted a national campaign to raise public awareness regarding the wasteful ways of Washington and the rising debt burdens being imposed on future generations. He advocates returning to the timeless principles and values that made us great while making the tough choices necessary to help ensure that our future is better than our past. With the federal government's financial hole already over 13 trillion dollars deep and growing rapidly, Walker will present ways our country can rein in out-of-control government spending and reform our Social Security, healthcare, defense, tax, political and other systems before it's too late. Walker presents the facts and discusses specific proposed solutions to the nation's impending fiscal crisis -- and how we can fix it to ensure that our country enjoys a sustainable economy for generations to come. He has authored three books including his most recent Comeback America: Turning the Country Around and Restoring Fiscal Responsibility.

"Our annual SCI Client Innovation Summit serves as a forum for clients to share and learn best practices, connect with the best and brightest leaders and learn innovative approaches to solving big challenges facing healthcare systems today," said Jeff Anderson, managing partner at SCI Solutions. "David Walker delivers a powerful message that will enlighten healthcare leaders at every level -- from front line access managers to CEO's -- in their quest to tightly manage their markets and patient populations. We look forward to sharing and connecting innovative ideas with David Walker and all SCI clients this October."
