In this session Bob will describe some key issues involved in evaluating a country’s healthcare system.  The results of a variety of organizations ranking of countries on their health systems will be reviewed.  In addition, a construct for describing and categorizing a country’s health system from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) will be used to look at selected health systems around the world.   The audience will be split into three groups before the session and each group assigned a country that reflects one of the three major types of healthcare systems under the OECD framework.   A short description of the assigned country will be provided to each person that has registered for the meeting.

“Can the American Healthcare System Deliver Health?”

Patricia Gabow, M.D., MACP, Retired CEO Denver Health, Professor Emerita, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Master of the American College of Physicians

Patty Gabow

As we engage in a national dialogue about our healthcare system, we should ask the most basic question, “Can the American healthcare system deliver health?” To answer this question, we will explore three related questions:

  1. What is health–is it more than the absence of disease?
  2. What is our healthcare systems performance in terms of cost, coverage/access, quality, and equity/disparity?
  3. What really are the determinants of health and what is the impact of each of these determinants?

As we address these questions, we will compare the United States to other countries and compare states and counties within the United States. After addressing these three questions, we will try to lay out a way forward for health for all Americans.

WHEN: Wednesday, August 22nd from 12 noon to 2 p.m.

Robert Bob Smoldt“The ACA at 6+ Years
—Now What?”

 

Robert (Bob) Smoldt, Chief Admin. Officer emeritus, Mayo Clinic

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed about 6 years 10 months ago.  This presentation will analyze what has happened since then – what has worked and what hasn’t.  Such an analysis should influence what type of ACA reform/replacement takes place now.  In addition, potential replacement steps will be reviewed.  The group will then act as “Healthcare Czar” and vote to see the actions it would implement.


Bob is the Chief Administrative Officer emeritus of Mayo Clinic. He served as a member of the Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees and Mayo Clinic Executive Committee from 1990-2007. Presently, he is Associate Director of the Arizona State University Healthcare Delivery and Policy Program. At Mayo Clinic, Bob worked in a variety of administrative positions in both medical and surgical departments prior to being named the Chief Administrative Officer. Bob also served two terms on the Board of Catholic Health Initiatives.

WHEN: Thursday, February 23rd, from 12 noon to 2 p.m. Arrive early to meet and visit with Bob and other attendees.
