Patient-Centered Care versus Political Medicine
With a Keynote Address by Representative Thomas E. Price

As the summer of health reform unfolds on Capitol Hill and across the nation, many physicians have expressed concern that proposed legislation might jeopardize private health insurance and the doctor-patient relationship. At this forum, Representative Thomas E. Price (R-Ga.), chairman of the Republican Study Committee, will describe his vision of patient-centered reform that would transfer purchasing power to health care consumers and ensure that medical decisions are made on a personal level between physicians and their patients. Dr. Donald J. Palmisano, former president of the American Medical Association and current spokesperson for the Coalition to Protect Patients' Rights, will address the dangers of a government-run, micromanaged medical system and suggest alternative ways to resolve current problems in U.S. health care. Dr. Scott Gottlieb of AEI will comment on both presentations, and AEI's Thomas P. Miller will moderate.
