Money Changes Everything: The Warped Incentives of American Healthcare

In the US, we spend more on healthcare than any other developed country, but somehow our health is worse. Despite major changes in our healthcare system over the past 25 years, Americans continue to both sink further into medical debt and face worse health outcomes. So what’s keeping us from reforming healthcare?

Dr. Yousuf Zafar is a gastrointestinal medical oncologist and healthcare delivery researcher. He is an Associate Professor of Medicine and Public Policy at the Duke Cancer Institute and Sanford School of Public Policy. His research explores ways to improve cancer care delivery and the affordability of cancer treatment.
