On May 3, the Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy hosted a conference on health care productivity growth. Two main questions were addressed: First, how productive has the health care sector been historically, particularly once changes in the quality of care are taken into account? And, second, what are the prospects for improvements in productivity growth in the future?
