American Health Care 2021 - Now What? Discussion 2: The Disconnects

Tuesday, Sep 28 1764


American Health Care is likely to be shaped by another decade of spectacular scientific breakthroughs and new technical accomplishments. Unfortunately, unless we can significantly improve the health care policy decision-making process, its also likely that the current health care system will continue to be plagued with funding issues that challenge taxpayers and patients and create access problems for rural and low-income populations, both of which adversely affect the nation’s overall health status and the productivity of its workforce. 

This disconnect between our scientific and technological capacity to do better for people who need care and our ability to deliver that care equitably in an efficient, effective and affordable manner represents one of the largest human and financial challenges facing the nation, its people and its employers.
