Will Value-based Care Save the Health Care System?

March 2, 2018

Value-based health care is one of today’s most pressing topics in health care finance and policy. To explore this important issue, Ropes & Gray and Harvard Law School’s Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics hosted a full-day conference on value-based health care. The event brought together the foremost health care scholars, law practitioners and industry business leaders to provide a variety of viewpoints on challenges posed by the current regulatory framework, innovative value-based health care models and value-based contracting in the pharmaceutical industry, among other topics.
