America's health care inadequate

The 2007 American College of Physicians (ACP) briefing on the State of the Nation's Health Care will provide rationale for:

  • Sweeping new policy recommendations to reform Medicare, Medicaid, S-CHIP, and other programs supported by the federal government.

  • Patient-centered primary care -- a model that has resulted in better quality, more efficient use of resources, reduced utilization, and higher patient satisfaction.

  • A comprehensive plan for achieving a high-quality, affordable, and patient-centered health care system for all Americans.
