Start Date: September 18, 2014
End Date: September 18, 2014
Location:
Event Details:

Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative Webinar

Health care costs are having real impacts on patients’ and consumers’ budgets across the country. Families have seen their health insurance premiums increased by almost 130 percent in the past decade while their out-of-pocket spending has risen by almost 80 percent.

To understand the impacts health care costs are having on patients and consumers, the National Quality Forum (NQF), with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, organized a two-day meeting that brought together key stakeholders including patients, consumers, health plans, researchers, clinicians, and community health experts. Representatives from NQF will join the PCPCC during this webinar to discuss the results of that meeting. Results include:

What health care affordability means from the consumer and patient perspective
What information patients and consumers need to find affordable care
What are possible pathways toward more effective approaches to addressing affordability in health care

Guest Speakers:

  • Rob Saunders, Senior Director, National Quality Forum
  • Melissa Thomason, Committee Co-Chair, Patient/Family Advisor, Vidant Health

You can review the results at http://www.qualityforum.org/Defining_Affordable_Care.aspx

This event is free of charge but advanced registration is required.
