International Symposium on Health Care Policy, Fall 2008


The Fund's 11th annual International Symposium on Health Care Policy will focus on nations' best practices for achieving value throughout the health care system—how to deliver high-quality, accessible care that is affordable and sustainable. In bringing together leading policymakers and researchers from Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, the symposium will highlight for U.S. policymakers the strategies that other health systems have employed to achieve greater efficiency and better outcomes at lower costs. To reach the Washington, D.C., policy audience, the Fund and the Alliance for Health Reform will cosponsor a pre-symposium briefing on Capitol Hill to showcase examples of innovative international approaches to health care policy and delivery. Insights gained from these alternative models will inform the work of the Fund's Commission on a High Performance Health System. The journal Health Affairs will consider online publication of papers commissioned for the symposium.
