Health Affairs Forum in Sacramento — Improving Care for Californians
Monday, October 15, 2018
Citizen Hotel, 926 J Street, Sacramento, California
About This Event
On the heels of its September theme issue, “California: Leading the Way?,” Health Affairs invited health care researchers, economists, providers, and journalists to this Sacramento briefing. Not since a special issue in spring 1996 has Health Affairs done such a deep dive into a specific state or region. The briefing will feature health policy experts and key players in California health care.
As Californians prepare for new leadership to address challenges both new and old, this is the perfect time to survey California’s health policy landscape and examine topics including: purchasing for value and quality, addressing social determinants and integrating care, and the pros and cons of consolidation. Participating panelists were:
Christopher Waley, Associate Policy Researcher, RAND Corp.
Tricia McGinnis, Senior Vice President, Center for Health Care Strategies
Jeffrey Rideout, CEO, Integrated Healthcare Association
Bradley P. Gilbert, CEO, Inland Empire Health Plan
Jennifer Kent, Director, California Department of Health Care Services
Elliott Main, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Medical Director, California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative, Stanford University School of Medicine
Richard Scheffler, Distringuished Chair Emeritus in Healthcare Markets and Consumer Welfare, UC-Berkeley
Elizabeth Imholz, Director, Special Projects, Consumers Union
Thomas M. Priselac, CEO, Cedars Sinai
The California theme issue and the briefing were funded by CHCF, the Blue Shield of California Foundation, The California Endowment, and the Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics at the University of Southern California.
