Intelligence Squared Debate: Will Retail Alliances Fix the U.S. Health Care System?
What will save, U.S. health care? Some argue that the bargaining power and data competencies of retailers entering into the healthcare business will squeeze middlemen out of an inefficient supply chain and bring more transparency to health care pricing. But others argue that the promise of these novel efforts is overstated, particularly because U.S. health care is so complex and deeply rooted. Will consumer-focused models and employer-led initiatives lead to better and less expensive outcomes? The debaters are Dr. Rajaie Batniji, Dr. Lisa Bielamowicz, W. Gregg Slager, and Rosemarie Day.
