The Aspen Children’s Forum: The Delivery of Care When Putting Children First

August 7, 2012

The evolution of the healthcare delivery system has profound implications for the health and well-being of children. Panelists highlight the various sources of change in the delivery of pediatric care—from the opportunities offered by personalized medicine to the transition from the treatment of acute infections to the management of chronic disease. What are the positive and negative effects of these changes? How would we organize the overall delivery system in a world in which we put children first?
