International Lessons for the Financial Sustainability of Health Systems


As the Affordable Care Act is implemented, debate continues over the best way to curtail the steady climb in health care costs. This grant, the fifth 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 will focus on cost-containment strategies in high-income countries, efforts to protect access to high-quality care during the recent fiscal shocks, and the role of primary care infrastructure as a driver of system performance. Results will be disseminated through the Fund’s 2012 international symposium, through a Commonwealth Fund/Alliance for Health Reform briefing, and, potentially, through Health Affairs.
