Taking a Systems Approach to Health and Economic Vitality

On June 18, 2009 the Alterum Institute held a seminar entitled  “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.
