Event Details

 

At 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 15, the Kaiser Family Foundation will host an event featuring an upcoming PBS documentary with former Washington Post correspondent T.R. Reid – U.S. Health Care: The Good News – which explores efforts to provide low-cost, quality health care in the U.S.  The film looks at variations in health spending across the country and showcases efficient health care delivery systems, like Grand Junction in Colorado and Group Health in Seattle, suggesting that these communities demonstrate that it is feasible to provide Americans with first-rate care while still controlling the cost.

The event will also feature a panel discussion, moderated by Kaiser’s Jackie Judd, to examine the issues raised in the documentary and the challenges, constraints and potential solutions for achieving affordable, effective health care in the U.S.

Panelists will include:

T.R. Reid, former Washington Post correspondent
Dr. Elliott Fisher, Professor of Medicine and Director for Population Health & Policy, The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice
Carol Beasley, Director of Strategic Projects, Institute for Healthcare Improvement
Dr. Mark McClellan, Director, The Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform, Brookings Institution
Sean Cavanaugh, Acting Deputy Director of Programs & Policy, Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation, CMS


(A brownbag lunch will be provided at noon)

The event in the Foundation's Washington, D.C. office is open to the public.
