Description

The United States spends more on health care than any other country, but high spending often does not translate into improved outcomes, particularly in comparison to health systems in other countries.  
 
Are there policies that could help redirect the U.S. health care system? What are the appropriate goals of the health care system?
 
Two health policy experts discussed how quality, efficiency, and responsiveness can be emphasized in the U.S. health system.
