Health Care Matters with Hartford HealthCare

Health Care Matters with Hartford HealthCare

“HealthCare Matters” is a monthly radio series about health care issues, including the quality of care in the United States, care coordination, and the changes that are occurring under health care reform that will affect every American. Why is health care in the United States so fragmented and expensive, especially compared to other developed nations? Why must you struggle to manage your care and your family’s care? Will health care reform help? How will reform affect your physician and your hospital? These are just a few of the issues Hartford HealthCare President and CEO Elliot Joseph and Media Relations Director Rebecca Stewart have discussed with some of the nation’s health care experts. Many listeners have joined in on the conversation, asking questions and offering comments on these important topics. Hartford HealthCare invites you to join the conversation by tuning into HealthCare Matters at 11 a.m., the third Sunday of every month.
