Gilfillan, M.D., the director at the Innovation Center of Medicare and Medicaid Services Ezekiel J. Emanuel, a vice president for global initiatives at U. Penn and a senior fellow with Center for American Progress.
According to the Center for American Progress(which you can follow on Twitter at @CAPCongress) they will talk about: “Which payment models show promise? How are private payers and health care providers changing? Is the recent slowdown in health care spending solely the result of the recession, or have payment and delivery system reforms also played a role? Are we on the cusp of a new era for our health care system? How can payment and delivery system reforms be accelerated and expanded?”
