The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) has released proceedings report from the November 29, 2017 Roundtable on Quality Care for People with Serious Illness. 

Those facing serious illness have a range of interconnected medical and non-medical needs, and the way their care is financed has a large impact on the care they receive. Public and private health care payers are testing innovative financing strategies and alternative payment models - this report is a factual summation of the Roundtable session discussions among clinicians, researchers, policy analysts, and patient advocates, as well as representatives from academia, government and private health care plans, and insurers to discuss challenges and opportunities in financing high-quality care for people with serious illness. 

The John A. Hartford Foundation was one of the co-sponsors of the Roundtable.
