February 10 Luncheon: Regina Herzlinger, "Godmother of Consumer-Driven Health Care"
Luncheon:Harvard Professor Regina Herzlinger on Healthcare Reform- H-Y-P Joint Meeting. One of the nation's most respected health care analysts has a bold new plan for a consumer-driven system that will deliver affordable high-quality care to everyone.
One of the nation's most respected health care analysts, Regina Herzlinger exposes the motives and methods of those who have crippled America's health care system—figures in the insurance, hospital, employment, governmental, and academic sectors. She proves how our current system, which is organized around payers and providers rather than the needs of its users, is dangerously eroding patient welfare and is pushing costs out of the reach of millions.
"Who Killed Health Care?" outlines Herzlinger's bold new plan for a consumer-driven system that will deliver affordable high-quality care to everyone. By putting insurance money in the hands of patients. removing the middleman in the doctor-patient relationship, and giving employers cost relief, consumers and physicians will be empowered to make the system work the way it should. Herzlinger describes in precise detail how her innovative program will provide.
Regina E. Herzlinger, often referred to as the "Godmother of Consumer-Driven Health Care," is a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research. She was the first woman to be tenured at the Harvard Business School. Herzlinger is widely recognized for her innovative research in health care, including her early predictions of the unraveling of managed care and the rise of consumer-driven health care and health care focused factories—two terms that she coined.
Professor Herzlinger has been honored with numerous awards, including the American College of Healthcare Executives' Thompson Book of the Year Award twice and the Academy of Healthcare Executives Research Award three times. She received the Hospital Financial Managers Association’s Board of Directors award and has been repeatedly selected one of the "100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare" in Modern Healthcare.
