2020 Health Policy Symposium:

Improving Healthcare Through Transparency and Collaboration

February 27th – Memorial Union, ASU Tempe Campus – Check in @ 12:30

Program from  1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Experts from across the health care and other sectors reflect on the value of making available to the public, in a reliable, and understandable manner, information on the health care system’s quality, efficiency and consumer experience with care, which includes price and quality data, so as to influence the behavior of patients, providers, payers, and others to achieve better outcomes (quality and cost of care).  As the Coronavirus progresses – the discussion becomes key to understanding many of the ways disruptions can impact the health sector.

Register  at:


The 2020 Healthcare Policy Symposium brings together the wide range of organizations and perspectives that contribute to the provision of care and caregivers to better understand this important area for excellence in 21st century medicine. Leaders from outside of the health sector will provide an opportunity for cross-industry learning.
