At a time when health care is top-of-mind for Washington and the medical community around the country, The Atlantic’s 2013 Health Care Forum gathered doctors and nurses, policymakers and entrepreneurs, and big data experts and big business leaders to discuss next steps for health in the United States. On May 1, with a packed house of engaged audience members, coverage from C-SPAN, and an enthusiastic group of experts on stage, the Forum had an energy and depth that truly carried the day.
