Former CEO of St Anne’s Hospital in Massachusetts, Michael Metzler, will join Lori Anding King and Lucille Fisher to provide a tutorial on our current USA Healthcare System. Mike has also served on the adjunct faculty of Boston College and Boston University and is an esteemed community leader. St. Anne’s Hospital was listed as among the top 100 in the US during his tenure. Mike is currently writing a book about healthcare in America.
Here are some of the questions that are discussed
1. What are the general characteristics of the U.S. healthcare system in the U.S.?
2. How do they differ from the systems in other countries?
3. The U.S. spends more of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on healthcare than any other country. How do we do relative to other countries on health outcomes?
4. What are healthcare providers?
