This was the second in a series of three webinars, produced in partnership with The Commonwealth Fund, focused on high-priority topics in system transformation for which there is substantial international innovation and a learning opportunity for both U.S. and non-U.S. audiences. The first webinar in this series looked at reducing low-value care, and the third webinar will explore care for complex patients on Thursday, November 12, 2015.
