The New England Journal of Medicine and the Massachusetts Medical Society released a video this week of a panel discussion on U.S. health policy.  I thought it was a fascinating and intelligent discussion by representatives of all the stakeholders in the debate.  The discussion covers many topics critical to American healthcare, including the dwindling numbers of primary care physicians, adoption of electronic medical records, providing care to the tens of millions of uninsured, and the escalating costs of healthcare.

This is a handy primer on a topic that will become increasingly important in the next decade.

The video is about an hour long, and is open to non-subscribers.
