Reinventing HealthcareStreaming Video - 2009
Can the U.S. afford to reform its healthcare system? Can it afford not to, with 46 million Americans lacking health insurance and millions more underinsured? This Fred Friendly Seminar explores the dilemmas and urgently needed policy decisions surrounding what has become, literally, a life-or-death issue. NYU law professor Arthur Miller guides a team of high-profile panelists through a series of hypothetical case studiesâ€”focusing on a middle-aged man who must choose between a higher-paying job and adequate health coverage; a woman who avoids seeing a doctor because of high co-pays; and an uninsured woman who, tragically, canâ€TMt afford to deal with a serious medical problem. Panelists include William Novelli, CEO of the AARP; Dr. Regina Herzlinger, Harvard Business School professor; David Walker, former U.S. Comptroller General; Dr. Eduardo Sanchez, Vice President of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas; Michael Tanner, Cato Institute senior fellow; and Dr. Regina Benjamin, founder of the Bayou La Batre Rural Health Clinic.
