Agenda

 

In the U.S., we waste an estimated one-third of our health care dollars each year. Administrative inefficiency, overuse of tests and procedures, and overpriced drugs add up to about $1 trillion per year in unnecessary costs.

How do we bring those costs down without sacrificing the quality of patient care? Join the Texas Medical Center Health Policy Institute as we discuss the leading innovations in cost reduction with some of the country’s top health policy experts. Registration is free, and free parking with shuttle is available at Old Spanish Trail and William C. Harvin Boulevard.
