How to Finance Health Roundtable

Americans spend on health care more than double the per capita average of high-income countries yet many health outcomes in the U.S. lag considerably. How can society as a whole finance health rather than health care? Who should lead this effort, which is arguably the most pressing societal need?

These questions were debated in October 2023 at an NEJM Catalyst roundtable discussion, which brought together experts with different perspectives: 

  • Carolyn Clancy, MD, Assistant Under Secretary for Health for Discovery, Education and Affiliate Networks, Veterans Health Administration
  • Rushika Fernandopulle, MD, MPP, Instructor in Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital; Faculty, Harvard Medical School
  • Wayne Jonas, MD, President, Healing Works Foundation
  • Hoangmai (Mai) Pham, MD, MPH, Founder and President, Institute for Exceptional Care
