Nora Belcher is the Executive Director of the Texas e-Health Alliance, a non-profit advocacy group founded in 2009 to give health information technology stakeholders a voice in public policy. She is widely considered one of the state’s leading experts in digital health care, having worked on the issue for over 20 years in a variety of roles.

Join us on Tuesday, Sept 10th as Nora provides an update of the busy 2019 session in which legislators considered a host of policy topics, from how to respond to the opioid crisis to cybersecurity for state agencies, to how best to use remote patient monitoring in the Medicaid program. Providers, vendors, and other stakeholders were debating these issues too, while the legislature was talking on big ticket issues related to property taxes and education funding.
