International Symposium on Health Care Policy, Fall 2011


The Fund's 14th annual International Symposium on Health Care Policy will compare policies and strategies across industrialized countries for reducing the growth of health care expenditures, as aging populations drive increasing demand for health services. Of particular interest are international approaches to provider payment reform; the use of comparative effectiveness research in insurance benefit design; best practices for pricing pharmaceuticals, medical imaging, and medical devices; and disease management and delivery system redesign. In bringing together leading policymakers and researchers from 12 countries, the symposium will highlight for U.S. policymakers the strategies that other nations have employed to ensure high-level performance and sustainability. The Fund and the Alliance for Health Reform will also cosponsor a briefing on Capitol Hill showcasing international reforms relevant to the U.S. The journal Health Affairs will consider online publication of papers commissioned for the symposium.
