Understanding the Policy Landscape: Using Research to Inform Public and Private Sector Programs and Policies
Fellow and Lead, Health Innovation, Bipartisan Policy Center
Outcome Areas: Positive Health
Date: Wednesday, November 14, 2018 1 to 2pm
A number of innovative policies are now emerging from both the federal government and the private sector to improve the quality, cost, and patient experience of care, as well as improve health outcomes for Americans.
Provisions that will improve health, reduce burden, improve information sharing, and enable payment for health-related, non-medical services have emerged through the 21st Century Cures Act, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, and other important legislation, and are now being implemented by the federal government. Private sector employers and payers are also investing in programs to improve health and wellness, including social determinants of health. States and local communities across the country are doing the same. There is tremendous opportunity to inform such policies to positively impact children’s lives.
Learn about the current policy landscape – including the impact of the mid-term elections – and how research emerging from the ECHO Program can offer timely, relevant input to public and private sector policies that can improve health outcomes for children.
