One of the great thought leaders in healthcare today because 1) he’s super smart and 2) he’s not beholden to any stakeholder.
– Marty Makary, MD
Professor Chandra invites attendees to consider the three major challenges that confront U.S. healthcare: access, quality, and medical innovation. He describes how these challenges are likely to mutate in the future, and the roles that the principal stakeholders—doctors, insurers, hospitals, innovators, and government—may assume, given their relative capacity to adapt to these challenges. Of these stakeholders, physicians are potentially the central players, but a raft of issues, ranging from medical liability to reimbursement, have a major impact on physicians’ ability to lead the transformation. He will conclude with a thoughtful discussion of the potential incentives that can help in making physicians the leaders in the transformation of American healthcare.
