Healthcare is big business—accounting for nearly one-fifth of the overall U.S. economy. And federal health policies often impact healthcare companies and their strategies. Understanding market trends and their implications can provide important context for policymakers.
At the 23rd annual Wall Street Comes to Washington Roundtable, Wall Street analysts—guided by health policy expert and economist Paul Ginsburg, PhD, director of the University of Southern California-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy—will discuss what the latest market developments mean for national health policy and how federal policies may affect the outlook for healthcare companies, including health plans, hospitals and physician organizations.
