The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Changes in Health Care Financing and Organization (HCFO) initiative hosted a meeting to discuss the state of defined contribution in 2002. The meeting highlighted findings, published in Health Affairs, from a recently-completed HCFO grant conducted by Jon B. Christianson, Ph.D., and from a recently-released HCFO special report examining defined contribution. The purpose of this meeting was to make new research findings accessible and to advance the field's thinking about defined contribution and its potential effects.
