Would the Affordable Care Act survive a Trump administration, or would a Clinton presidency keep the ACA intact? Is the United States prepared for a global pandemic? How will payment reform affect health systems, physicians and patients?
These are a few of the thorny issues to be tackled at a Stanford Health Policy symposium on Friday. The afternoon event — Health Policy through 2020: The ACA, Payment Reform and Global Challenges — will feature several panel discussions and opportunities for audience questions. It will kick off with remarks from Dean Lloyd Minor, MD.
Speakers include David Entwistle, the president and CEO of Stanford Health Care, and Christopher Dawes, president and CEO of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. The keynote speaker is Bob Kocher, MD, one of the architects of the Affordable Care Act. Now a partner at the venture capital firm Venrock, Kocher will review the highs and lows of the federal act adopted in 2010.
The symposium, which runs from 1 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. Pacific time, is now at capacity; it can be watched via livestream and followed on Twitter at @StanfordHP and #HealthPolicy2020.
