Leaders from all sectors of the healthcare industry, government, business, academia and the patient advocacy community are gathering in Washington, D.C. on Monday, March 2 for an open summit meeting on how healthcare payment and delivery systems can better encourage innovation while achieving greater value and financial sustainability. The summit is hosted by the Healthcare Leadership Council as part of its National Dialogue for Healthcare Innovation initiative.
