July 12, 2016 - Sustainable U.S. Health Spending in the Next Administration

As the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and a strengthening economy continue to expand health insurance coverage, health spending growth has trended above its recent historic lows. To what extent has this imperiled longer-term sustainability and what should the next Administration do about cost control? Our fifth annual Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded symposium coming 4 months before the presidential election, will update health politics and divergent policy choices, discuss health care and resultant fiscal pressures, and peer into the future health spending trends.

July 21, 2015 - CSHS Symposium: New Dimensions on Sustainable U.S. Health Spending

With Funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Altarum's Center for Sustainable Health Spending Presents New Dimensions on Sustainable U.S. Health Spending. With historically slow growth in national health expenditures likely behind us, dormant issues are back in play, including continuing the insurance coverage gains achieved by the Affordable Care Act while avoiding catastrophic long-term fiscal deficits. Coming shortly after the King v. Burwell Supreme Court decision, this fourth Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funded sustainable health spending symposium will provide an update on health spending, discuss pressing healthcare reform issues, analyze associated cost factors and peer into the future regarding health spending trends.

July 15, 2014 - Sustainable U.S. Health Spending Symposium: The Quest for Value

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.

June 18, 2009 - Webcast: Innovation, Health, and Equity - Taking a Systems Approach to Health and Economic Vitality

This webcast provides full audio and video coverage of the June 18, 2009 health policy seminar "Innovation, Health, and Equity -- Taking a Systems Approach to Health and Economic Vitality." This seminar included discussion by Altarum Institute's Distinguished Scholars and Research Directors addressing the three critical attributes Altarum believes must be addressed in health reform to achieve financial stability and better health outcomes for all Americans. The three attributes -- health care innovation, health and wellness, and health equity -- are fundamental to truly systemic reform and fiscal sustainability of the health care system. 

Speakers included Cong. John M. Spratt; C. Eugene Steuerle; Michael Parkinson; Holly Korda; David A. Kindig; Stanley Chin; David R. Williams; Jamie Hart; and Michael Chernew. The research reports are also available online.
