The Healthcare Organization's Role in Influencing Public Policy

  • Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Round Rock 300 University Boulevard Round Rock, TX, 78665 United States (map)

Many of society's most critical issues confront healthcare organizations daily. From access for the uninsured and underinsured, children, and elder care initiatives, patient safety and Medicare and Medicaid changes, healthcare organizations must address a myriad of issues. In addition, healthcare must also deal with payer demands for cost containment and the growing expectation for transparency. How can your organization advocate on those public policy issues that clearly affect your community and healthcare providers? How important is it for healthcare leaders to become involved in policy issues at the local, state and national levels? Can your participation really impact how regulatory and fiscal decisions get made? What are the advantages or disadvantages to your organization in joining this kind of an advocacy effort? 

Please join us in learning and sharing best practices in influencing public policy.
