The 2nd Health Care Markets Conference

The health care market landscape in the United States has changed rapidly in the past several years, requiring an integrated perspective to understand the complex interaction between choices at the micro level and the shifting regulatory and institutional landscape at the macro level. This two-day conference provides a forum for industry leaders, policy analysts, and academic experts to examine how consumer and firm choices, as well as government regulation and policy, shape and transform health care markets.
