Celebrate the release of Purchasing Medical Innovation: The Right Technology, for the Right Patient, at the Right Price with author James C. Robinson in San Francisco!
James Robinson is Professor of Health Economics and Chair of the UC Berkeley Center for Health Technology. His book is a timely analysis of the rising costs of medical technologies, as well as what this entails for the health care industry as a whole. Touching upon private healthcare as well as the Food and Drug Administration and Medicare, Purchasing Medical Innovation evaluates both the strengths and weaknesses of the current system of purchasing and highlights opportunities to improve the value and availability of better medical technology.
James will be holding a panel session at the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco on Thursday, June 4, beginning at 12 PM and concluding with a book signing beginning at 1 PM. Additional details and tickets are available at the Commonwealth Club website.
