The Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston sponsored "Next Steps for Health Care Reform: Will Massachusetts Show How to Control Costs and Improve Quality?" an event that was held on Sept. 26, 2011 as part of their "Boston 101" series. The event featured MA State Representative Steven M. Walsh, House Chair of the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing and current Rappaport Urban Scholar in the Harvard Kennedy School's MC/MPA Program as well as David Cutler, Otto Eckstein Professor of Applied Economics, Department of Economics, Harvard University. Having led the nation on health care reform, Massachusetts may again lead the way by developing global payment systems for doctors and hospitals. Key policymakers and legislators, including Representative Walsh, currently are developing legislation needed to implement these policies. If they are successful, the state could be a model for how to rein in costs while delivering more comprehensive, patient-centered care. Cosponsored by the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston, the Taubman Center for State and Local Government, the Wiener Center for Social Policy, and the HKS Health Policy Professional Interest Council.
