Convened by the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at Brookings, roundtable teleconferences provide a forum to discuss public and private initiatives in which methods, data sources, and technology related to active medical product safety surveillance are being developed. These roundtables are intended to engage a broad range of stakeholders in productive discussions that reflect the current state and growing activity around medical product surveillance.

In their recent book, “The New Localism,” Bruce Katz and Jeremy Nowak argue that cities and counties will be tested as never before in the coming years. They will need to innovate and reform—to pursue new strategies for growth and finance—in a fiscal environment dominated by rising health-care and pension costs. In these circumstances, the quality of metropolitan governance will matter more than ever.
