It now appears certain that healthcare reform will be high on the political agenda next year. The upcoming Presidential and Congressional elections promise to focus public and business leaders’ attention on proposals to heal our ailing healthcare system. This requires more than force of will or mere innovation. Everyone would agree that the current system is unsustainable. What is the best way to change the system? Full market-based? Governmental-run system?

For New York, the stakes could not be higher.

At this private forum, you will get answers to key issues:

  • How much can we rely on Marketplace Forces?
  • What to do about Universal Coverage, Rising Health Care Costs, Gaps in Quality of Care?
  • What impact could Reform have on our large Academic Health Centers and Medical Schools? The Life Sciences Community? Small Businesses? Wall Street?
  • What Role should State and Federal Government Play in Addressing these Problems?
  • How could Reform Impact State and City Medicaid and other Health Expenditures
