Videos: Strategies for improving affordability of high-quality care and coverage

April 19, 2018

The USC Schaeffer Center for Health policy & Economics, in partnership with the National Coalition on Health Care, hosted the Southern California Health Care Summit: “Strategies for Improving the Affordability of High-Quality Care and Coverage” in March at USC. The event brought together health care experts to discuss advances in practice and policy that aim to improve the affordability of health care — for patients and families, employers, public and private payers, and providers.

Topics included:

  • How to improve the delivery, coordination, and efficiency of care;
  • How to make markets for insurance and health care services more competitive and efficient;
  • How to increase access to and lower costs for prescription drugs;
  • How to provide better and more efficient care to high-need, high-cost patients; and
  • How to reduce the demand for care by refocusing on prevention and the social determinants of health.
