Mayo Clinic to host inaugural National Symposium on Health Care Reform in May

The Mayo Clinic National Symposium on Health Care Reform will bring together leaders from all sides of the issue May 21--23 as the first step of a nationwide, long-term project to help shape the future of health care. National experts in health care, public policy, business and patient advocacy will gather in Rochester, Minn., to identify innovative and tangible solutions to the complex issues of health care reform, while firmly placing the needs of the patient at the center of the discussion.

This symposium, unlike others, will be highly participatory, nonpartisan and solution-focused. Leaders of national health care organizations, advocacy groups, associations, employers, insurers, providers and policy makers have been invited. Attendees will sit with key stakeholders and build innovative recommendations for reform.

"The need for health care reform is clear," says Denis Cortese, M.D., president and CEO of Mayo Clinic, who will open the symposium. "Mayo Clinic steadfastly holds to our primary value that 'the needs of the patient come first.' Our unique strength lies in bringing together leading medical experts from diverse fields to find the best integrated solutions for patients' complex health concerns.

"In similar fashion, we intend to use this strength to bring experts in health care, public policy, business and other disciplines together to identify solutions to the complex problems of health care reform," he says.

These healthcare reform issues will be discussed in panel format. The panel topics and the current list of panelists includes:

  • "Overspent, Overdrawn, Overwhelmed: Reducing Health Care Costs" explores the inequity in access to resources, disparity in quality and endless paperwork. Panelists are Roger Feldman, Ph.D., University of Minnesota; Gary Kaplan, M.D., Virginia Mason Medical Center; Eugene Litvak, Ph.D., Boston University; and John Wennberg, M.D., M.P.H., Dartmouth College. Moderator is Susan De
