Health Care Matters with Hartford HealthCare


hhc header 420 Health Care Matters with Hartford HealthCare

HealthCare Matters is a monthly, radio series that aims to further the conversation about health care: what works, what doesn’t work– and how do we bridge the gap.

We have tapped the nation’s experts to be guest on our program, including David Blumenthal, MD, MPP who served as the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology under President Barack Obama.

We want to start the conversation and help change the way that health care is delivered.

Today, health care in the United States is costly and fragmented. According to the Commonwealth Fund and Organization for Economic Development, the United States ranks sixth among seven developed nations (Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the United Kingdom) in quality of care and care coordination and seventh in cost, efficiency and equity of care.

Why is this?

Why are patients and their families struggling to manage their health care? Why must they feel they are swimming from one island of care to another with no bridges to connect them.

Join the conversation, and tune in to Health Care Matters.

On the Next Health Care Matters:

Join hosts Elliot Joseph and Rebecca Stewart, along with featured guest Scott Defelice, President and CEO of Oxford Performance Materials, a leader in 3D printing which has been used to create everything from prosthetics to dental work, and perhaps one day, human tissue.

Together, we will tackle the toughest topics and your questions.
