May 23: “Trickle-Down Healthcare Policy” with Dr. Melinda Buntin

Trickle-Down Healthcare Policy: What Federal Changes Could Bring at the Local Level

The controversy over the future of healthcare in the United States is momentous. With the debate mounting around coverage, costs, and who pays, so do concerns about how these changes impact our local healthcare communities. Join us on May 23rd for a lunch discussion with Dr. Melinda Buntin on what federal healthcare changes could bring at the local level.

Dr. Buntin is the Chair of the new Department of Health Policy at Vanderbilt School of Medicine. She was previously Deputy Assistant Director for Health at the Congressional Budget Office where she evaluated legislative proposals and directed studies related to healthcare financing. Prior to that Dr. Buntin was deputy director of RAND Health’s Economics, Financing, and Organization Program, director of Public Sector Initiatives for RAND Health, and co-director of the Bing Center for Health Economics.

Dr. Buntin’s work at Vanderbilt is focused on healthcare delivery and costs, with an emphasis on improving the value created by the healthcare system. She currently serves on the Department of Health & Human Services Technical Review Panel on the Medicare Trustees Report and the National Academy of Medicine’s Board on Health Care Services.
