Follow us on Twitter: @Altarum_CSHS #CSHSustain
Historically slow growth in national health expenditures may be ending, but either way, health spending growth remains the single most important driver of long-term fiscal deficits. With Affordable Care Act insurance coverage taking hold, increasing health sector efficiency becomes more urgent.
This third Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funded sustainable health spending symposium will provide an update on health spending growth, review initiatives shaping increased health system value, assess the role of prevention, and discuss future trends for spending growth and efficiency.
