    Abstract

    Every health care economy in the world is resource constrained - whether in the context of a lower income country marshalling whatever resources are available, an emerging economy struggling to keep up with economic transformation and popular expectations, or a country such as the United States with health care costs now at about 18% of GDP and likely to continue rising at 1.5% the rate of GDP growth. As was remarked in The Economist, 'The US does not have a debt problem … it has a health care cost problem.' The search is on everywhere to sustain and improve quality of health care within existing parameters, to ensure that capacity is tied to what patients need and want rather than being supply driven, to reduce unwarranted practice variation, and to innovate to achieve greater value. Cross-border learning in how best to pursue these goals can achieve more than is possible in one country alone. Where might the most fruitful exchanges lie in this regard between the United States and other parts of the world?

    Specific questions we will discuss include:

    • How do we maintain momentum when we hit the 'flat of the curve' when extra resources apparently yield little improvement?
    • How do we get to the next level of quality improvement in low and middle income countries?
    • How can cross-border learning maximize real value and innovation in health care delivery?
    • How can we engage vulnerable communities?
    • What is the significance of the global 'right to health' discussion for the USA?
    • How can we be innovative in resource constrained contexts?
    • What is the role of quality improvement in strengthening health systems? Can we collectively improve the science?

    This Fellowship session is being organized in collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, who are also kindly hosting the event on October 30, 2013.
