Amid this period of discussion and confusion about the fate of human services and social insurance financing, people are generally at the Derby Academy June 13 for an exchange with Dr. Donald M. Berwick, one of the country’s most renowned social security specialists.

Berwick will share his experiences and participate in discussions on national social insurance issues and their proposals for Massachusetts:

• The contrast between viewing and financing the care.

• Questions raised by the current official deliberations.

• The issue of medical services.

• Challenges with the greatest possible care that the current framework positions are for specialists.

• What is “single payer” human services and how it is contrasting from the business area.

• Ways of securing increases so far, while they have a dream for what is to come.

• Questions and remarks in Massachusetts to ensure good results.

Berwick focuses on the management of human services frameworks, with emphasis on the use of logical techniques and proof-based recipe and similar viability research to improve the compromise between quality, well-being, and cost. A true expert in social insurance quality and change, Berwick has won various honors for his obligations in the field.
