Rita E. Numerof, Ph.D., President of Numerof & Associates, Inc. (NAI) joined Paul Howard, Ph.D. of The Manhattan Institute in a podcast discussion of reform legislation effects on the healthcare industry.

As Dr. Numerof noted in the discussion, “The legislation that was passed earlier this year only addressed … the issue of insurance reform, and at … enormous expense and bureaucratic oversight. But the legislation really didn’t address the ultimate objective of better health outcomes at lower costs in a direct way; it didn’t address the issue of delivery reform; and it didn’t address the issue of payment reform.”
Dr. Numerof and Dr. Howard went on to discuss what is being done to advance evidence-based medicine.
