The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and the Detroit Regional Chamber will sponsor the fourth annual forum examining health care delivery in the U.S. This year’s program will analyze the role of insurance in the health care system. The role and opportunity for employers in creating value will also be explored. The prospective programs likely to be enacted in Washington will also be evaluated and assessed.
This year’s conference will include presentations by Dr. Karen Davis, president of the Commonwealth Fund, Dr. Paul Ginsburg of the Center for Studying Health System Change, and Dr. Peter Hussey of the RAND Corporation. In addition, there will be a series of speakers and panels that will evaluate the costs and benefits of paying for outcomes as opposed to the current system that reimburses for treatments. Various approaches to getting best value in health care will also be discussed.
Additional information about the conference, including registration, can be found at the Detroit Chamber's website.
