A 360° Discussion of Foreign, National and Local Policy Issues

Health Care Reform

This topic was discussed on July 22, 2013
This session will focus on the dramatic changes in the U.S. health care system. Among the potential sub-topics are:

  • What should be the federal government’s role in health care?
  • What changes should there be in how health care organizations (doctors, hospitals, device manufacturers, etc.) are compensated? (Existing fee-for-service model vs. more “outcome-based” compensation?
  • Why does the U.S. lag other developed countries in certain “health” metrics (despite spending a greater proportion of GDP on healthcare)?
