At What Cost?
An Atlantic Forum on Prescription Drugs

October 3, 2017
Washington, DC

A new era of prescription drugs has seen record numbers of FDA approved drugs enter the market, helping millions fight disease. At the same time, drug prices are soaring, and debates have resonated from Washington and beyond on how to transform health care and reduce spending.  How can the health care industry work to make prescription drugs more affordable?

The Atlantic convened top health policy thinkers and practitioners to explore how to foster drug innovation while controlling cost with new approaches like value-based programs on the horizon.
