The Impact of Healthcare Reform – Grand Rounds Call for Submissions

Reading time: 2 minutes

Highlight HEALTH will be hosting the next edition of Grand Rounds, 7.11, on Tuesday, December 7th.

Starting in January 2011, you’ll no longer be able to use your flexible spending account for over-the-counter medications unless you have a doctor’s prescription. For this edtion of Grand Rounds, we’d like to focus on the impact of healthcare reform: what are the changes to healthcare delivery, utilization, quality, costs (either as a provider or a patient) or outcomes. After all, these changes affect everyone, whether you’re a healthcare provider, a biomedical researcher and/or a patient. As host, I invite you to send your submissions.
