On Tuesday, July 17, 2007 in Washington, DC, Intel Corporation assembled a group of the nation’s most respected health leaders to discuss the issues surrounding chronic care and an aging population and explore solutions to these highly complex and increasingly urgent challenges for the US health care system. The highlevel summit, hosted by Intel Chairman Craig Barrett, was held in the auditorium of the National Museum for Women in the Arts and attended, either in person or via the simultaneous webcast, by presidents, chairmen, and executive directors of influential organizations including the National Business Coalition on Health, the National Medical Association, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The summit was organized around 3 expert panels with representation from health care associations, health insurance companies, policy makers, advocates, providers and provider organizations, patient advocacy groups, and health technologies. Susan Dentzer, PBS' on-air health correspondent (The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer), served as moderator. Highlights of the panel discussions follow.
