Conditions for Progress: Strengthening America's Health Care Ecosystem

Agenda


Tuesday, November 13


8:30 am EST Conditions for Strengthening the US Health Care Ecosystem     Watch On-Demand
The National Journal discusses conditions for strengthening America's health care ecosystem.

Health care represents nearly 18 percent of the nation's GDP, and produces significant macroeconomic drivers such as innovation, R&D, and millions of jobs over the long term. Such a significant part of our
economy, not to mention our individual and collective health, must be understood in the context of an interconnected system facing significant challenges that are not limited to any one sector. Changes
in policy in the coming years that impact one area in the health care ecosystem can have effects across the spectrum of care delivery, patient outcomes, and medical progress.

Join National Journal for a discussion on the state of the health care ecosystem, the connections between the numerous issues that lie ahead, the consequences of policy and business decisions, and the innovative solutions that can help strengthen the ecosystem for the
future.
