Right Care, Right Time, Right Place

The Unfinished Business of Healthcare Reform

The success of national health reform depends on patients receiving the highest-value therapies and treatments provided through smart, responsive systems of care. While many of us assume that Californians are receiving the best possible care, even for people with the best health insurance, that is not always the case.

This event cast light on what can be done now by doctors, hospitals, consumers and policymakers to support effective care that takes into account the latest findings in medical science as well as the preferences of individual patients and the judgments of their healthcare providers.

This event was co-sponsored by the California State Assembly Health Committee, the California State Senate Health Committee, the Campaign for Effective Patient Care and the New America Foundation.
