Featured Speaker, Chris Ohman, "Essential Challenges Facing US Healthcare" - We're getting a raw deal with health care in the United States: We pay twice what other industrialized nations pay, yet we live shorter lives and live our lives with more disease. The health care debate has focused extensively on financing care. Figuring out who pays the bill is just not enough. We must also rethink the business of health care, moving from a payment system that rewards sick care to rewarding health and efficiency. And, we need policies which profoundly address the social determinants of health. With health care a leading area of concern and debate in current political discourse, and in particular in elections for federal office, candidate policies should be analyzed not only for how care would be financed, but for promotion of system efficiency and social determinants of health.
