SAN DIEGO, Feb. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Top officials from San Diego's leading healthcare institutions will headline Modern Healthcare's upcoming Issue Briefing on March 23, "From Volume to Value." The breakfast and panel discussion will focus on the challenges healthcare leaders face as they move from volume to value.  Panelists will discuss the latest innovations in how to meet the needs of the populations they serve and how to improve their clinical and financial outcomes. The San Diego event is the first of this year's multicity series that is exploring how local healthcare markets are addressing these crucial issues.

Chris Van Gorder, president and chief executive officer, Scripps Health; Pam Kehaly, president of West region and specialty business, Anthem; and Michael W. Murphy, president and chief executive officer, Sharp Healthcare, will discuss a range of topics surrounding their move from volume to value.
