  • C-suite ready

    "Rosemarie Day spoke to our cross sector summit of healthcare CEOs running insurance companies, provider organizations, pharmaceutical, device and other service companies about the implications of national healthcare reform, with a particular focus on how her own lessons learned from running the MA Health Connector would provide insight for those contemplating their role in the health care exchanges.  Her session was highly rated, with one CEO saying she was 'the best speaker yet', partially because of her deep experience, strategic insight, understanding of a political operating environment, and her lack of defensiveness when pressed about issues such as general healthcare expenditure cost control."

    Brenda Curiel, Managing Director, Center for Corporate Innovation (CCI)
