Restructuring Health Care Systems

Are they for real?

Stuart Altman speaks for the Boston University School of Public Health’s October Health Policy Forum.  Dr Altman is an economist by trade and is currently the Chairman of the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission.  He is an active faculty member at the Brandeis University Heller School for Social Policy and Management. He formerly served as Chairman of ProPAC, the congressionally legislated Prospective Payment Assessment Commission, responsible for advising the U.S. Congress and the Administration on the functioning of the Medicare Diagnostic Related Group (DRG) Hospital Payment System and other system reforms.

His official job title should be genius.
