Health Reform Roundtable

Health Reform Roundtable

Read the Roundtable’s June 26th op ed in the Wall Street Journal

The Challenge
Health care constitutes nearly a fifth of our nation’s economy. For nearly a decade political and policy leaders have engaged in intense debates about the design of our health care system, leading to insecurity for the American public about whether and how the system will serve them. There is a need for dialogue across stark differences to generate wise and durable policies that best serve the American public.

The Project
Working through Convergence, a small group of respected and diverse health policy thought leaders are looking to identify areas of agreement on key issues in health policy. Their efforts together began in March 2017. The group seeks to have a constructive impact on the Congressional health reform debates and to propose health policy ideas that can withstand major changes in the political landscape.

The Roundtable released two health reform propositions in an op ed piece in the Wall Street Journal on June 26, 2017. The accompanying press release highlights the recommendations and lists the signers.

Through this effort, the Roundtable hopes to generate ideas that lead to wise and durable improvements in the American health care system.
