"Reinventing Health Care: Lessons from the Field" marks the release of the summary report of the Aspen Institute Health Innovation Project. For the past two years, the experts of the Health Innovation Project — convened in 2011 by the Aspen Institute in partnership with WellPoint Inc. — endeavored, first, to outline a path to a more-perfect system of American health care. Those recommendations were released in the 2012 white paper, "Reinventing Health Care: The Barriers to Innovation."
Armed with that report, the Project's leaders then took to the road to shine a spotlight on notable providers, community-based organizations, and insurers across the country that are advancing innovation that improves patient care and enhances efficiency. "Lessons from the Field" is a survey of those innovators and the programs on the verge of changing the face of American health care.
On September 25, from 9:00am - 12:00pm EDT, the experts of the Health Innovation Project share their findings, beginning with a keynote speech from Dr. Patrick Conway, the Chief Medical Officer and Director at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
