"Planning for your Future Health Care Needs: What Matters Most To You"

Rising costs, uneven access and quality of care, too often litter the headlines describing health care in the U.S. This session explores the current system of paying for long-term care, proven models of care and wellness, patient and caregiver-directed partnerships, and technological and organizational innovations as key opportunities to enhance and improve health care delivery. What is critical is to be sure that the changes sought are aligned with your needs, values, and preferences. Attendees will be engaged in an interactive dialogue with a multidisciplinary panel of UPenn experts to help move the needle on achieving high value care for an aging society.
