Fixing Reimbursements: How We Pay Physicians
Wednesday, April 26, 2017
12:00 PM-1:15 PM
Miriam Laugesen, PhD, Associate Professor of Health Policy in the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University, will speak about fixing medical prices and how we pay physicians.
Dr. Laugesen is a past recipient of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator Award in Health Policy Research. She is also the author of Fixing Medical Prices: How Physicians are Paid, (Cambridge and London: Harvard University Press, 2016). Fixing Medical Prices goes to the heart of the U.S. medical pricing process: to a largely unknown yet influential committee of medical organizations affiliated with the American Medical Association that advises Medicare.
