Overview

Listen to the full session audio recording and view speaker presentations here. Evidence-based health care is getting a lot of attention as a way to control costs and increase quality. But what does "evidence-based" mean? And why are some questioning this approach? Listen to state and national experts discuss the use of the concept in funding options in the Affordable Care Act, current federal initiatives and state policies, and how its overuse might pose problems.
