New York Health Care Summit: Strategies for Improving the Affordability of Care and Coverage
November 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Please join us and an outstanding group of leading health care experts – including our keynote speaker Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, author of Prescription for the Future: The Twelve Transformational Practices of Highly Effective Medical Organizations – to discuss strategies for improving the affordability of health care and coverage.
We will examine the underlying causes of escalating health care costs—for employers, patients and families, and public programs—and a wide range of options for making care more affordable. Among the topics:
- how advances in practice—including delivery, coordination of care, collaboration across silos and sectors, technological innovations, and payment models—can reduce costs while improving outcomes;
- how to make markets for health insurance and health care services more competitive and efficient;
- how sharp increases in under-insurance are making care less affordable for insured Americans—and options for addressing this problem;
- how to provide better and more efficient care to high-need, high-cost patients; and
- how to reduce the demand for care by advancing community health and decreasing and treating unhealthy behaviors.
