Reinventing Health Care: Lessons from the Field

Thursday, September 25, 2014
9:00 AM to 12:30 PM
Aspen Institute Headquarters, One Dupont Circle, Suite 700, Washington, D.C.20036

ThinkAnthem and the Aspen Institute hosted a briefing on September 25, 2013, to mark the release of the summary report of the Aspen Institute Health Innovation Project. For the past two years, the experts of the Health Innovation Project – convened in 2011 by the Aspen Institute in partnership with Anthem Inc. – have endeavored to outline a path toward a better system of American health care. Those recommendations were released in the 2012 white paper, “Reinventing Health Care: The Barriers to Innovation.”

Upon completion of the report, the Project's leaders took to the road to shine a spotlight on notable health care providers, community-based organizations and insurers across the country that are advancing innovative approaches to improve patient care and enhance efficiency. "Lessons from the Field" is a survey of those innovators and the programs on the verge of changing the face of American health care.

The event featured report authors and health care innovators who participated in the project, who discussed these findings and the lessons they may hold nationally.
