Dr. Charles Kilo is the Chief Medical Officer in Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). His responsibilities include performance improvement, clinical risk management, infection prevention and control, regulatory and medical affairs, and clinical informatics. Dr. Kilo works regularly with the American Board of Internal Medicine, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Physicians and others on issues of healthcare performance improvement and health system reform.
According the Dr. Kilo, misaligned payment system, lack of geographic responsibility and accountability, competition for paying patients, exuberance about new technology, poor role definition, and lack of leadership are forces that drive up costs while driving down quality. He will discuss rational distribution of resources as a key problem in the US health care.
