How has the landscape of medicine and economics surrounding health policy changed, and how have these changes influenced health policy? Join host Dr. Jack Lewin as he welcomes guest Dr. Rashi Fein, professor of the economics of medicine emeritus in the department of global health and social medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston, and author of the book, Learning Lessons: Medicine, Economics and Public Policy. Although the Affordable Care Act is thousands of pages in length, Dr. Fein suggests that policy makers "keep it simple," even with the most complex health policy issues, in order to have an efficient system that is easy to implement. How can such complicated health policy issues be clearly explained?
