Current Affairs Discussion Group – Best Global Practices in Healthcare: Which Should the U.S. Adopt?

Friday, September 27, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


Members only—free. To register, please scroll down or call the Village office at 773.248.8700.

The Commonwealth Fund, an independent nonprofit that evaluates healthcare systems around the world, rates the U.K., Netherlands, and Australia as providing the highest quality healthcare for the lowest cost. Each follows a fundamentally different system for combining public and private stakeholders. Meeting attendees will learn about each system, its key implementation details, and its experience to date from pre-readings. The group will then discuss how we feel these systems might guide important details for a restructured U.S. system. In addition, each attendee may present a revealing news article on any topic of their choosing for at most 5 minutes of group discussion. Optional self-hosted lunch to follow.
