This quasi-academic conference, organized by Stanford health economist Dan Kessler, brought together academics and health policy makers to examine the production of and use of health care market information by consumers and employers. It examined some effects of competition in promoting or retarding information use. Aspects of health care quality were also addressed. Participation included government health care experts and employers.
