About this conference


New Jersey consistently ranks in the top third of states for the overall health of its residents - but its health care costs per person are among the highest in the country. Why is that and what is being done to address this? In recent years, New Jersey has begun to address a fundamental challenge that the nation as a whole faces: how to drive improvements in patient care while controlling costs.

The Atlantic will host a town hall event, convening a group of entrepreneurs, doctors, researchers, business leaders, patient advocates and health officials to discuss the partnerships and strategies that New Jersey's health care sector is implementing to solve the cost and quality riddle - and if these ideas are translatable to the national arena.
