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.
