International Lessons for Bending the Curve: Achieving a High Performance Health Care System While Reducing Growth in Health Expenditures


Following passage of the Affordable Care Act, there is renewed debate over the best way to curtail the steady climb in health care costs. This grant, the fourth in a series to the London School of Economics and Political Science, will support the work of an international advisory group that will identify and compare best practices for maximizing value and containing costs, and then assess their potential applicability to the United States. The group's target areas will include value-based insurance benefit design, payment for chronic disease management, and pharmaceutical and medical device pricing and policy. Project results will be presented at the Fund's 2011 International Symposium on Health Care Policy and summarized in four papers to be submitted to Health Affairs. A Commonwealth Fund/Alliance for Health Reform briefing on Capitol Hill will further disseminate findings.
