Challenges of Surrogate Decision Making

I am excited to be a part of an upcoming Geisinger Health System Conference, “On Another’s Behalf: The Law, Ethics, and Challenges of Surrogate Decision Making” on April 10.


While not the focus of this conference, Geisinger is well-known for its ProvenCare program.  This program features three key elements: (1) a strict reliance on evidence-based standards in medicine, (2) a fixed-price financial mechanism to pay for certain procedures, and (3) patient engagement.  Geisinger is often mentioned as a “model” for healthcare reform.
