Where Do We Go From Here? The Future of Health Reform

Co-Sponsored by The Council on Health Care Economics

The 18th Annual Princeton Conference focused on the future of health care reform and the many implications of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Panelists during this two-day meeting included senior administration officials Donald Berwick, Sherry A. Glied, Michael Hash, and David Blumenthal, as well as veterans of past health care reform battles and private health system leaders. Panelists looked at historical efforts to enact comprehensive health reform and lessons that shaped the Obama administration’s approach to passing the legislation. Those who opposed this legislation weighed in with their own perspectives. Several panels looked at the implementation of the ACA, with an examination of insurance regulations, state health exchanges, Medicaid expansion, ACOs, the Innovation Center, and more. Looking beyond implementation, panels discussed the impact of the ACA on health care spending and examined strategies to constrain the growth of health care costs. Panels also looked at how health reform will affect the quality of health care, new payment reforms, and how the delivery system can provide more coordinated care.
