Congressional Forum: Digital Health Policy in the 118th Congress

Tuesday, April 18 at 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM CT
South Building, Level 1 | S100 C

The Congressional Forum is a lively panel discussion featuring key House and Senate staffers on the digital health policy landscape and what we can expect from the legislative agenda in 2023. Health information and technology played a central role in our response and recovery during the COVID-19 pandemic, but as the Public Health Emergency winds down, hear about what policy developments will continue, what still need to be addressed, and what may be on the chopping block. This session will look at the pressing issues facing lawmakers and what opportunities exist with a divided Congress to pass meaning legislation that will advance the U.S. health system transformation.
