International Symposium on Health Care Policy, Fall 2003


The Fund's sixth annual International Symposium on Health Care Policy would explore the complex challenges facing hospitals and the kinds of innovative approaches that are emerging to address them. In bringing together leading policymakers and researchers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States—and potentially other G-7 countries—the symposium would alert U.S. policymakers to ways in which hospitals in other countries are: meeting rising expectations for health care quality and demands for information technology, addressing nurse and physician shortages, and responding to medical advances and the needs of aging and increasingly diverse populations. Presenters would highlight innovative policies and programs, incentive structures, and new health care delivery models that support these changes and improve quality in health care. The May/June 2004 issue of Health Affairs would feature symposium proceedings.
