The Quality Forum’s debate is meant to incite discussion and challenge commonly-held beliefs about a timely health care topic. We have assigned the debate’s speakers to their teams; their positions do not necessarily reflect their personal views on the debate topic, nor those of their respective organizations.

While you’re counting down to QF18, you can also watch last year’s debate, where speakers argued whether or not we need disciplined execution of existing improvements more than innovative approaches to delivering care to achieve the transformation of the health care system.
