The 2021-23 Congress, like every Congress for the past 30 years, will change the American health care system in one way or another and then, just as we have in the past, America's health care consumers, premium and tax payers will wait to see whether the changes work as promised and what they really cost. CAUS asserts that there is perhaps a way to help our policy makers get access to the information they need to make better decisions.
Join our discussion as we navigate ways to improve the decision-making process.
The Need For More Informed Decision Making
There is a better way to design and manage America’s health care.
American Health Care is likely to be shaped by another decade of spectacular scientific breakthroughs and new technical accomplishments. Unfortunately, unless we can significantly improve the health care policy decision-making process, its also likely that the current health care system will continue to be plagued with funding issues that challenge taxpayers and patients and create access problems for rural and low-income populations, both of which adversely affect the nation’s overall health status and the productivity of its workforce.
This disconnect between our scientific and technological capacity to do better for people who need care and our ability to deliver that care equitably in an efficient, effective and affordable manner represents one of the largest human and financial challenges facing the nation, its people and its employers.
