The American health care system is plagued by high costs and poor public health outcomes. This symposium begins by exploring the challenges involved when legislators are tasked with designing laws that both preserve incentives for innovators and simultaneously attempt to lower costs for consumers. The symposium then explores the perverse impact of “medical waste” on health care budgets and patient safety.

Articles from the symposium are available in the 2014 Symposium issue of the Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review.
