ST. CLOUD, Minn. - "Healthcare in the Age of Technology" is the subject of a presentation to be made by Nancy Rehkamp, principal in the healthcare practice at LarsonAllen, on Wednesday, Dec. 3, from 4-5 p.m. in Ritsche Auditorium in Stewart Hall.
The presentation, hosted by the Society of Unified Management Organizations, is part of the G.R. Herberger College of Business Emerging Topics Series at St. Cloud State University.
Rehkamp believes that reforming healthcare has to be the result of a collaborative partnership between politicians, policy makers and healthcare providers and that technology must be used in new and innovative ways to reduce the costs of providing healthcare to an aging society.
Rehkamp has 25 years of healthcare experience, including long-term care operations, acute care hospital administration, rehabilitation services and home care and hospice management. As a principal at LarsonAllen, she specializes in market strategy and program and operational planning for acute and post-acute healthcare organizations. Prior to LarsonAllen she was president of HealthSpan Home Care and Hospice, senior administrator of Abbott Northwestern Hospital and executive director of the Sister Kenny Institute.
Rehkamp earned a bachelor of science degree in accounting and business in 1974 and a master’s in public administration in 1977, both from the University of Kansas. In 1996 she completed the Masters Forum on Information Technology at the University of Minnesota.
The Herberger College of Business third Emerging Topics Speaker Series will feature Patrick Klinger, vice president of marketing for the Minnesota Twins on Feb. 4.
