The Conversation Speaker Series: In our own backyard

Thursday, April 12, 2018, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

In our own backyard: Access to care in Houston’s vulnerable population. What can Houston contribute to the national health care debate? The answer—many vital and missing pieces to the puzzle—is surprising when you consider our state’s terrible reputation in this regard. Much of the ill repute is earned from highly political decisions, like not expanding Medicaid, but what the country doesn’t know is that Houston’s safety net hospital system provides affordable and high-quality health care to vulnerable patients. This session will delve into how the Harris Health system blends conservative and liberal ideals in healthcare, and how in doing so, achieves a level of cost-saving that can serve as a model for the rest of the country.
