Reorienting Health Care and Business Investment Priorities Toward Health and Well-Being: A Workshop
On December 3, 2018, the Roundtable on Population Health Improvment held a one-day public workshop that explored some of the factors that can spur change in economic priorities in two spotlight industries: health care and financial services. Both industries are in the midst of a quest to reorient decision-making regarding when, where, and with whom to invest resources that affect all lives and livelihoods, and thus shape the conditions for health and well-being.
The workshop featured invited presentations and discussion that explored (1) the history and current state of the shift to new investment priorities (e.g., environmental sustainability, worker well-being), (2) what industry leaders are doing to make progress and avoid pitfalls; (3) tools and platforms that are useful to these efforts; and (4) lessons and insights that stakeholders can use to help reinforce the shift toward healthier investments.
A proceedings of a workshop-in brief and a complete proceedings based on presentations and discussion at the workshop will be released. In addition, the workshop was webcast and is available for playback.
