We in the U.S. spend more on health care than any other developed country and by many measures have less quality care. In addition many Americans have no health care coverage. The Affordable Care Act attempts to provide access to health care to more Americans but does little to address costs and quality. In this program we discuss efforts to address the two other problems with our health care system – cost and quality – with Dr. Richard Antonelli of Children’s Hospital, Boston and Harvard Medical School.
