Essay: "Containing Health Costs Requires Measuring, Rewarding Spending Efficiency" (May 27th)

Today, Bloomberg Law posted this essay in which I argue if Senator Lamar Alexander, Chair, HELP Committee, wants to address cost containment he needs address how we can drive greater spending efficiency or value in health care.  The essay is at: https://news.bloomberglaw.com/health-law-and-business/insight-containing-health-costs-requires-measuring-rewarding-spending-efficiency

Last Thursday, May 23rd, Senator Alexander released a draft list of provisions the HELP Committee is considering to contain costs or reduce spending growth.  The list is at: https://www.help.senate.gov/chair/newsroom/press/senate-health-committee-leaders-release-bipartisan-discussion-draft-legislation-to-reduce-health-care-costs

On June 11th I'll interview U. of Michigan Professor, Andrew Ryan, who has written several articles regarding measuring for value or again spending efficiency.  For example, see: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/1077558716650089?journalCode=mcrd
