2013 Summit: Policy Roundtable

January 29, 2:00PM-4:15PM     Bipartisan Roundtable: Perspectives on How to Implement Real and Lasting Policy Change

Transforming care for America’s sickest and most vulnerable is a moral and fiscal imperative for the country as unprecedented numbers of Americans experiencing advanced illness, either as a patient or caregiver, continue to grow.  Following the earlier panel discussion on innovative models of advanced illness care, hear from a bipartisan group of policy makers (sitting and past) and thought-leaders as they tackle the barriers to policy and regulatory reform at all levels.  And as fiscal and political agendas are set in Washington, join in the dialogue on identifying the solutions to spreading care models that “work”.
