Should Investors Own Healthcare?
During this Lancet Webinar, a panel of US-based experts will examine the implications of growing investor ownership of physicians’ practices, hospitals, and other health services in the USA, and their consolidation into giant corporate enterprises that dominate insurance and care delivery in many regions of the USA. Speakers include a former head of the federal agency that administers Medicare and Medicaid, and leading researchers on private equity investments in health care, the bureaucratization of US healthcare, and healthcare reform. This session will conclude with a live Q&A moderated by Claudia Fegan, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Chicago’s Cook County Health Care system.
