Predictions 2023: Policy and Regulatory Impacts on Consumerism in Healthcare
Join Lirio’s Chief Evangelist Patrick Hunt and his guest–Dan Boston, President & CEO of Health Policy Source–as they look ahead to the legislative and regulatory environment for consumerism in healthcare in 2023. One of Washington Life’s “Power 100” of the most influential people in our nation’s capital and focused exclusively on healthcare, Dan has a uniquely informed perspective on public policy trends impacting the industry. This discussion will cover data privacy, big tech, artificial intelligence, and other topics that directly impact how healthcare organizations–providers, payers, large employers, and digital health companies alike–can engage with consumers… and how they may not. In the increasingly complex world of healthcare delivery, meeting consumers where they are is paramount; understanding the rules and regulations for doing so is essential. Join us for this lively discussion, and questions from our audience.
Questions and comments from our audience are highly encouraged! See you soon.
