Integrated Care and Population Health: It’s All About Health Systems
Chris Ham, former Chief Executive of The King’s Fund will speak to the role of the UK Think Tank, outlining how they led the debate on integrated care and population health, influenced policy makers at a national level and locally, and then worked to support implementation. How do we go beyond influencing policy to ‘making it happen’ helping practically in the development of leaders and systems?

North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (NAO)
The North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (NAO) is a collaborative partnership of interested researchers, health organizations, and governments promoting evidence-informed health system policy decision-making. Due to the high degree of health system decentralization in the United States and Canada, the NAO is committed to focusing attention on comparing health systems and policies at the provincial and state level in federations.
