Webinar: “It Costs How Much?” Understanding Health Care Spending and Getting to the Root of the Problem

July 17, 2019
12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m. ET

This webinar will delve into an initiative aimed at getting to the root of two vexing health care spending challenges – what could we do in the United States to better allocate our resources, and how can we ensure those resources are not wasted on low-value care. To get to the root of what’s driving health care spending, this initiative is bringing together multiple stakeholders across the country – employers, health plans, clinicians, providers, health systems, patients and other stakeholders to engage in discussions that ask some tough, “third rail”-types of questions.

The speakers will share how these discussions have been happening across the country and provide key insights to what has transpired so far. Topics have been related to costs, value, and allocation of health care spending and how those expenditures can best generate improved health outcomes.

The Going Below The Surface partnership initiative has been supported by National Pharmaceutical Council (NPC), a health policy research organization leading an effort to bring together stakeholders in a broader initiative on health care spending and value. View The Stakeholders.

  • Robert W. Dubois, Chief Science Officer and Executive Vice President, NPC
