Kaiser Family Foundation President, CEO Discusses Public, Experts’ Health Reform Beliefs
"The Experts vs. The Public on Health Reform," Kaiser Family Foundation: In the column, Kaiser Family Foundation President and CEO Drew Altman explores the "wide gulf on basic beliefs about what is behind the problems in the health care system and key elements of reform, especially delivery reform" between the public and experts. According to Altman, the differences "matter because key elements of health reform which elected officials expect to resonate with the public could get a decidedly less enthusiastic reception than expected if more is not done to close the gap in basic premises and beliefs between experts and the public." The column is the latest installment of a Foundation series, titled "Pulling It Together ... from Drew Altman" (Kaiser Family Foundation release, 5/19).This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
