The cost equation: affordable, efficient and high quality care for improved outcomes

A National Journal Live event.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011, 8 A.M.-10:30 A.M.

COLUMBUS CLUB AT UNION STATION, 50 MASSACHUSETTS AVE., NW

One of the central questions in today’s health care debate remains how best to create an affordable, efficient and high quality health care system with improved outcomes. The authors of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act attempted to answer this question with provisions that attempt to control fraud, waste and abuse; expand the use of electronic medical records; and encourage widespread use of coordinated care. At this policy summit, National Journal and a panel of experts will examine the leading proposals to bend the health care cost curve and explore how effective these efforts can be in slowing healthcare costs projected to reach $4.6 trillion and comprise 19.8 percent of GDP by 2020 by drawing on insights from past attempts to lower costs while improving care.
