Abstract

The 7th Annual 1998 Health Care Forecast Conference [California, US; February 1998] was attended by various US and Californian government and business leaders and academics, and provided a venue and platform for speakers and participants to share their perspectives and forecasts on key economic and political issues which impact on US healthcare. The meeting, entitled‘Winners and Losers Under Managed Care’,was sponsored by the Graduate School of Medicine at the University of California at Irvine. During one session at the conference, Susan Rucker, Partner and National Industry Director for Providers in KPMG's Health Care Practice, presented the findings of the first comprehensive study of the impact of consumerism on the US healthcare industry.
