In the press recently - Health care law and policy issues ... & some upcoming conferences
Here's a sampling of some recent press, touching on the diversity of issues that I've been dealing with these days:
Supreme Court Hears Arguments on Health Reform Law, Nation Awaits Decision We're counting down to a decision in late spring/early summer ... and I read today that oddsmakers are giving the law's opponents a slight edge.
Smart Social Media Policy for Healthcare I've been working with health care providers on social media issues from a variety of perspectives; this article from Monster.com is focused on the employment-related issues that arise from health care organizations' employees' use of social media.
Health Law 2.0: Data exchange spurs HIT compliance challenges I'll be chairing a Health Law 2.0 panel at the upcoming Health 2.0 Spring Fling in Boston; the pace of change in this arena continues to be rapid, and the question is always how to fit innovation within the regulatory structures unique to health care.
I look forward to seeing old friends and new at Health 2.0 in Boston.
While we're on the subject of conferences, I'll mention just one more: I'll be speaking at Medicine 2.0 in Boston this fall, and HealthCamp Boston will take place the day before: September 14. Please hold the date for HealthCamp -- whether or not you'll be attending Medicine 2.0 -- and let me know if you'd like to help organize (or sponsor) this unconference.
