"Wall Street Comes to Washington"

The event I look forward to every year is "Wall Street Comes to Washington," Paul Ginsburg's (Center for Studying Health System Change) annual merging of Wall Street and policymakers in a lively discussion of health care from both perspectives.

The last few years I have gotten to participate on the health insurance market panel. The session also had a panel concentrating on hospital, physician, and pharmaceutical trends.

Other panelists include leading health care analysts from Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, and Dreyfus. It's sort of an east meets west discussion of the health care system. The prognosis for earnings, bringing costs under control, the latest fads in health care, and prospects for reform are all discussed.

You can see both a transcript and video of the meeting on the Kaiser Family Foundation site.
