The Power of Economics to Guide Healthcare Markets
Prof. Larry VanHorn
In this session, Prof. Van Horn will underscore how the ignorance of basic economics has lead health care astray and will highlight recent developments which hold the potential to drive healthcare markets back to a free market. The winds are shifting and those organizations which understand these trends will be in a better position to capitalize the move toward market-based approaches. Topics will include: insurance economics, government finances, transparency, and price variation for health care services.
