Laura A. Dummit & Lisa Sprague, MBA
This special briefing was designed for federal health policymakers participating in the NHPF December 5-6 site visit to Boston. It featured researchers from the Center for Studying Health System Change who reported on their latest analysis of the organization, financing, and delivery of health care in the Boston market. The discussion centered on changes since the Center first began tracking the Boston market a decade ago with a special focus on innovations in the use of information technology to affect the practice of medicine.
