Americans spend more per person per year on health care – about $3 trillion total. Yet our nation lags many developed countries in basic measures of public health. We’re spending a lot, but getting mediocre results. At the same time, health care reform has put additional pressure on hospitals and insurance companies to control health care spending and improve outcomes. How can health care companies – payers, providers and drug makers — thrive in this environment? And how can we make health care more effective while still reducing costs?
