    The US health care system faces a crisis of cost, inefficiency, low value, and complexity. As the Trump administration and Congress work to reform health care, they should consider the innovative approaches developed by purchasers who cover more than half of all Americans — employer-sponsored health plans. Large employers have improved quality and controlled costs through patient engagement, provider payment reform, and delivery system improvement.

    Join AEI, the USC-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy, and the Pacific Business Group on Health for an outside-the-Beltway perspective on fixing the American health care system. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar will outline the challenges we face and opportunities for public and private action. Attendees will also hear from leading employers, payers, and providers about their initiatives. A second panel of policy experts will discuss the opportunities and challenges of adopting employer health innovations in federal health programs.
