Healthcare Experts Discuss Current and Future Challenges of Chronic Care on NewTalk
Date:6/24/2008

Online Forum Enables Public To Join The Discussion

NEW YORK, June 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 133 million Americans suffer from diabetes, asthma and other chronic conditions. The medical care costs for these patients account for more than 75% of the nation's $2 trillion medical care costs. And as the U.S. population continues to age over the next few decades, its medical bills are expected to spiral further out of control, even as the quality of care diminishes.

National healthcare leaders from across the country will explore the impending crisis and how to solve it in a unique, three-day discussion at NewTalk (http://www.newtalk.org), the online forum that tackles tough issues that are inadequately addressed in national political debate.

Titled "Chronic Care: Do We Need an Entirely New Model of Delivery?" the discussion will run from Tues., June 24, through Thurs., June 26 with participating experts joining online from locations across the country. Distinguished participants will include:

-- Troyen A. Brennan, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Aetna, Inc. (Hartford, CT)

-- Lawrence Casalino, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Health Studies, University of Chicago (Chicago, IL)

-- Susan Dentzer, Editor-in-Chief, Health Affairs and respected health policy journalist (Bethesda, MD)

-- Brent C. James, M.D., Chief Quality Officer, Intermountain Healthcare (Salt Lake City, UT)

-- Nancy Johnson, former Member of Congress and chair of the Health Subcommittee of the House Ways and Means Committee (R-CT)

-- Tim Jost, Professor of Law, Washington and Lee University School of Law (Lexington, VA)

-- David B. Kendall, Senior Fellow for Health Policy, Progressive Policy Institute (Washington, DC)

-- Mark McClellan M.D., Ph.D., Director, Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform, Brookings Institut
