Which Health Policies Actually Work?

We spend a lot of money on healthcare. How much if goes toward good studies of the health policies we implement. Not much. An almost natural experiment in Oregon has been revealing.

Is Our Health Care Spending Actually Worth It?

Many people know by now that the United States spends much more on health care than any other country, and that health outcomes are not a lot better (and in many instances worse). That raises the question: Is our health care spending actually worth it?

Does More Social Spending Reduce Healthcare Costs?

We spend a lot of money on social programs. Studies indicate that a lot of those programs work to improve health outcomes for people who receive the benefits. So, does that social spending reduce healthcare costs? Not really. But cutting social spending doesn’t help with health. As usual, it’s complicated, but there’s a lot of evidence these programs are doing good. Spending is worth it sometimes.

Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Their Health Care Proposals

We’ve got an election coming up here. It’s pretty much a dumpster fire. But we’ve still got a country to run, and a health care system that’s far from ideal. There are two main candidates, two main health care reform plans, and we’re going to break them down and discuss them. That’s the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.

And make sure to tune in to Healthcare Triage LIVE this Wednesday at 11:30 AM Eastern, where we’ll take all your questions on this topic.

Stanford Health Policy Forum: Controlling the Cost of Healthcare

The United States health care system is a $3 trillion enterprise, the largest in the developed world. Yet Americans often experience more severe access and quality problems, and spend much more for the same procedures and medications, than patients in other countries. Projections of the future cost of health care are unsustainable, yet many well-intended cost-control efforts have been ineffective. This forum features two renowned experts who will discuss the causes of and potential solutions to the extraordinary cost of American health care. Physician, journalist and Stanford alum Elisabeth Rosenthal has drawn national attention to the issue through her widely praised “Paying Till It Hurts” series in the New York Times. She will be joined by Professor Doug Owens, the director of Stanford’s Center for Health Policy and an expert in health care cost-effectiveness research.

Speakers: Doug Owens, Elisabeth Rosenthal, Paul Costello
