U.S.–France Internatinal Meeting on Care for High-Need, High-Cost Patients


Since 2008, France has participated in The Commonwealth Fund’s international surveys, serving as a key comparator for benchmarking U.S. health system performance. While French per capita health spending is less than one-half that of the United States, France achieves better results on access, care coordination, and equity. This first U.S.–France meeting will provide a forum for comparing the health reform agendas in both countries and the strategies implemented to drive improved health system performance for high-need, high-cost patients. Of particular interest to U.S. participants will be France's disease management care plans; primary care physician networks and voluntary gatekeeping; regional "one-stop shops" created to integrate health, public health and social care; nationwide pilots for the frail elderly; and value-based benefits design.
