In the view of Dr. Jandel Allen-Davis, the issues concerning health care and health care reform are all about frames of reference.  What we have today, in effect a “sick care” system, is, in some respects the perfect storm of conflicting interests:  Interests of consumers (users), businesses (employers) and providers.  There is no common definition of the problem(s) we are trying to solve with reform, no agreement on desired outcomes. And a very real part of the problem is that whatever else is true, some one of these constituencies is always winning.

Dr. Allen-Davis has a sense of how to begin to bring order to the chaos.  Come hear her talk about how to tame the dragon.
