The goals of health care reform of generating near-universal access at affordable cost, while also improving quality of care, will require transformation of health care delivery and finance. To what extent does health care reform, as currently configured, hold the prospects for such transformation of delivery of care? What are the lingering challenges?

Three internationally recognized expert panelists will address these issues, with expert commentary by one of the most prominent figures in health care policy in our era, and whose contributions indelibly shaped the current national debate over health reform, Philip R. Lee.
