ENGAGED IN A BIG-PICTURE DISCUSSION ON THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE

It was quite stimulating to take part in a health economics forum and health market simulator that Humana and the Santa Fe Institute convened with representatives from insurance, medicine, hospitals, employers, consumer groups, and government. The goal of the conference was to initiate a conversation about national health care challenges and opportunities. We heard presentations on complex systems, behavioral economics, and building sustainable organizations. A big emphasis was placed on individual and organizational well-being. Among the keynote speakers was former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona, MD.
