Health care faces potential disruptions, both political and digital.
The 2020 presidential election has made it clear that voters want better, less expensive health care coverage—but there is little agreement on how. Meanwhile, technology is revolutionizing medicine with new tools, including robot-assisted surgery, augmented reality, and big data.
These disruptions complicate age-old questions: What is the best way to cover everyone? How can all patients benefit from medical advances, regardless of income? How can we guard privacy?
In its fourth annual summit on health care, The Atlantic will gather the brightest minds in health care to discuss the thorny issues that confront the country, and the best paths forward.
