Politics & Public Policy of US Healthcare - Washington, D.C.

The potential impact of the 2016 elections on healthcare policy would be hard to overstate. The president-elect promises to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Congressional leaders have provided possible replacement plans which include many of the ideas put forth by the new Secretary of Health and Human Services. All this while healthcare in America is already undergoing tremendous change with 20 million newly insured, reimbursements shifting from volume to value, an increasing emphasis on quality and transparency, and a growing population with chronic conditions. In order to understand and influence laws, regulations and policies that impact their patients, organizations and professions, healthcare leaders need to know the new lay of the land, what’s possible in terms of change, what’s likely and what isn’t. During this week-long immersion in Washington, DC, participants will initiate relationships with key legislative, agency, industry and thought leaders through meetings in and around Capitol Hill to ensure their voice is heard – and learn how to maintain these relationships afterward. Participants will learn about the role of the federal government in healthcare and the most effective ways to communicate their position on health care issues. Ultimately, the skills and relationships that result will help you advocate more effectively and assume greater leadership responsibility.
