This is the full audio recording of the 2011 Rock Carling Lecture given by Professor Alan Garber, the next Provost of Harvard University. At the lecture Professor Garber discussed the role of incentives to improve the efficiency of care in the English NHS, and in particular to describe how they support or hinder care integration. He also reflected on the wider reforms to the NHS in England given the programme of reform of health care in the United States.
Professor Garber is the Henry J. Kaiser Jr. Professor and Professor of Medicine at Stanford University where he directs the Center for Health Policy and the Center for Primary Care and Outcomes Research. He is the current Rock Carling Fellow - a Fellowship that was established in memory of the late Sir Ernest Rock Carling and is awarded to a distinguished individual who is invited to review the current state of knowledge and prospects in a critical area of health care reform.
To accompany the audio of this lecture, Professor Garber’s presentation is available to download, along with a shorter video interview in which Professor Garber talks to Nuffield Trust Chief Executive Dr Jennifer Dixon.
