International Symposium on Health Care Policy


The Fund's seventh annual International Symposium on Health Care Policy will focus on improving health care from the patient's perspective, challenges in moving toward a patient-driven health care delivery system, and innovative approaches to addressing these challenges. In bringing together leading policymakers and researchers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States-and potentially additional G-8 countries-the symposium will highlight how other health systems are: improving responsiveness and access in health care delivery systems; redefining the doctor-patient relationship; incorporating patients' and families' experiences with care into quality improvement initiatives; facilitating patient involvement in treatment decisions; using performance data to give patients choice of providers; and promoting culturally competent care for increasingly diverse populations. Presenters will highlight innovative policies, incentive structures, and health care delivery models that support these changes and improve quality in health care. Commissioned papers from the symposium will be submitted for publication as Health Affairs Web Exclusive articles.
