Conference Paper

Will the United States continue to allocate a growing proportion of its GDP to health care?


Abstract: What policy options would improve the access, efficiency, and quality shortcomings found in the current U.S. health care system? This session will address the efficacy of the available policy alternatives and their likely interactions. What, for instance, are the cost implications of providing better insurance coverage and encouraging ongoing scientific progress? How should these desirable objectives be financed? Can better measures of quality and outcomes and more effective management systems help to balance our health care goals?
