Dialogue on US-China Relations: Healthcare Track
The National Committee on US-China Relations, an educational organization that encourages understanding of China and the United States between citizens of both countries, invited Mark McClellan, Director of the Margolis-Center, to lead the U.S. delegation on a new track II dialogue on healthcare. In partnership with the National School of Development at Peking University, the Committee is conducting an ongoing dialogue that brings together American and Chinese experts from academia, think tanks, and corporate representatives from different industrial sectors to discuss the healthcare system of each country, including innovation, population health, universal health coverage, and areas for cooperation.
The first healthcare dialogue took place in Washington, D.C in July 2017. Following the dialogue, the committee drafted a consensus document with recommendations for improving population health and healthcare in both countries.
In January, 2018, Mark McClellan and Jonathan Gonzalez-Smith helped produce the second consensus agreement as part of the Track II Dialogue on healthcare hosted by the National Committee on US-China Relations, an educational organization that encourages understanding of China and the United States between citizens of both countries. The consensus document summarizes participants’ perspectives and recommendations from the second Track II dialogue held in Beijing on January, 2018. Building off of recommendations from the first dialogue held in July 2017, the document presents steps both countries can take together to improve population health, reform payment and delivery systems, develop big data and information technology, and encourage innovative medical products and services.
