International Symposium on Health Care Policy, Fall 2012


The Fund's 15th annual International Symposium on Health Care Policy will focus on the policy levers and strategies that support outstanding health system performance on behalf of patients with chronic illness. Participants will compare countries' unique national policy frameworks, health care delivery models, and payment strategies to gain a better understanding of how the best outcomes at the lowest costs are achieved, with a particular focus on high-priority health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Specifically, the symposium will address: investing in prevention; ensuring access to effective treatments and technologies; and using payment mechanisms and chronic care models to support care coordination and reduce hospital readmissions. In bringing together leading policymakers and researchers from 11 countries, the symposium will distill relevant lessons for U.S. health reform implementation. The Fund and the Alliance for Health Reform will also cosponsor a briefing on Capitol Hill showcasing international innovations relevant to the United States.
