Date of Event
Oliver C. Schroeder, Jr. Scholar-in-Residence Lecture Stuart N. Altman, Ph.D. - Dean, The Heller School for Social Policy and Management and Sol C. Chaikin Professor of National Health Policy, Brandeis University September 25, 2007 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. The U.S. Health Care System 'In Irons' — in Which Direction Will It Emerge? The cost of private and public health insurance has been growing at or near double digit rates; the number of uninsured continues to creep upwards; and persistent quality of care problems plague the system. Is the U.S. health care system directionless? How did we get into this situation? Is there something we could do to get the health care system moving in a different direction? If we are not skillful at controlling our own destiny, which direction are we likely to head? Do we know in what direction we would like to go?
