Fixing America’s Broken Maternal Health System
A Conversation with Victor Caraballo, MD, MBA, Veronica Gillispie-Bell, MD, Rachel Hardeman, PhD, MPH, Pooja Mehta, MD, MSHP, and Karen Scott, MD, MPH, moderated by Sindhu Srinivas, MD, MSCE
Maternal mortality in the U.S. is higher than in any other developed nation, with substantial inequities in maternal health outcomes. Systemic barriers, including poor access to care and inadequate health care coverage, together with a failure to recognize, respect and listen to patients of color, are at the root of this crisis. Our expert panel will touch on innovations in health care delivery. We’ll also discuss what a systemic revamp would look like – one that encompasses health care delivery systems, insurers, payment, and more. Join us to discuss what a high functioning system could look like, how it could be financed, and what it will take to get there.
