Cornerstone Research and SIEPR Cosponsored Healthcare Conference

Experts, academics, professionals, and policymakers discussed healthcare coordination, innovation, and reimbursement, as well as the government’s changing role.

Cornerstone Research and the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) cosponsored “How Is Healthcare Changing? How Is the Government Responding?” on January 26, 2017. Deborah L. Feinstein, director of the FTC Bureau of Competition, gave the opening keynote address.

“New models of healthcare delivery are blurring the lines between providers and insurers,” said Dina Older Aguilar, head of Cornerstone Research’s healthcare practice. “These collaborations are giving rise to new allegations of anticompetitive behavior and different types of government investigations.”

Panels also covered the promises and challenges of innovation in healthcare, including issues of consumer protection and data privacy; and topics related to government reimbursements; the Affordable Care Act; and incentives of providers, insurers, and payors.
