2019 Texas Legislative Session Summary on Healthcare Technology
Join us for Nora Belcher's update on the impact of the 2019 legislative session on healthcare technology.
Nora Belcher is the Executive Director of the Texas e-Health Alliance, a non-profit advocacy group founded in 2009 to give health information technology stakeholders a voice in public policy. She is widely considered one of the state’s leading experts in digital health care, having worked on the issue for over 20 years in a variety of roles.
Join us on Tuesday, September 10th as Nora provides an update of the busy 2019 session in which legislators considered a host of policy topics, from how to respond to the opioid crisis to cybersecurity for state agencies, to how best use remote patient monitoring in the Medicaid program. Providers, vendors, and other stakeholders were debating these issues too, while the legislature was taking on big-ticket issues related to property taxes and education funding.
In this session, Nora will review legislative activity related to health information technology, discuss how HIT issues are perceived by state legislators and regulators, and provide HIT professionals with insights on how these topics will affect their work and personal lives.
