American Journal of Preventive Medicine Supplement

Join the discussion on the American Journal of Preventive Medicine Supplement focused on health care cost crisis
The West Health Institute and the American Journal of Preventive Medicine have collaborated on an extensive peer reviewed publication providing insights on how key stakeholders can help avert the crisis of expanding costs in health care.

Titled “Addressing the Cost Crisis in Health Care: Stakeholder Roles and Responsibilities,” this Supplement to the American Journal of Preventive Medicine brings together thought-leaders throughout the health care ecosystem to discuss the cost crisis and some potential solutions being implemented today, from payer to patient, physician to policy maker and private industry to entrepreneurs.

We need you to join the conversation about the cost of health care as well. Each week, West Health will feature a new discussion on each of these articles.
