Listen to the Regents Health & Executive Comp Committees, Feb. 6, 2018

This past Tuesday, the Regents Health Services Committee met at various locations including UCLA. Its meeting was followed by that of a special working group on executive pay.

We noted in an earlier post that there would be public comments at the health committee in support of bicycle use.* You can hear those comments at the beginning. Later there was general discussion of the economics of providing health care.

There was then discussion of UCLA' proposal to partner with a private company in China that runs hospitals. That firm wants UCLA to play what sounds like a consulting role and, as part of the deal, to use the UCLA "brand." What could possibly go wrong? There were some concerns expressed by Regents, but no one seems to want to say that this might not be a great idea.

You can hear the two sessions at the links below:
