The BRI-SUNY Downstate College of Medicine chapter with Downstate College of Medicine chapter of the American Medical Association and the Downstate Medical Entrepreneurship Club are joint hosts of the lunch lecture Innovations in Health Care Delivery with Dr. Beth Haynes, Benjamin Rush Institute medical director.
POST-EVENT SUMMARY: Forty-one students attended this event. The need for affordable, high quality medical care in the US is an ongoing topic. There are some exciting models which are achieving these goals, both in the US and internationally: cash-based practices like Direct Primary Care and the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, and from India, the non-profit Aravind Eye Care system of India, and the for-profit hospitals of cardiac surgeon, Devi Shetty. What can we learn from them to help address the cost and access challenges our country faces?
