Caring for High-Need Patients
October 3, 2017
High-need patients require the most attention from health care providers and the health care system, with the top 1 percent of patients taking up more than 20 percent of health care expenditures. We will examine what policies are needed to optimize the care of such patients and whether systems can be designed to better serve their needs. What actions can support the spread and scale of evidence-based programs?
The Health Policy and Bioethics Consortia is a monthly series that convenes two international experts from different fields or vantage points to discuss how biomedical innovation and health care delivery are affected by various ethical norms, laws, and regulations.
They are organized by the Harvard Medical School Center for Bioethics and the Program On Regulation, Therapeutics, And Law at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, in collaboration with the Harvard Law School. Support provided by the Oswald DeN. Cammann Fund at Harvard University.
