Consumer Choice in Health Care: How Could Reform Affect Our Choices? How Could We Make Better Choices?
The Alliance for Health Reform and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation co-sponsored this event which brought together nationally known health policy experts for a conversation on consumer choice in health care.
Panelists addressed the following questions: Why is choice of health care providers important? How much choice do we really have now? How much choice do we need? How might health reform affect our choices? In some instances, do we have too much choice? How could health information technology help us make more intelligent choices?
