HEALTHCARE REFORM’S IMPACT ON THE CLINICAL RESEARCH INDUSTRY

Healthcare reform in the United States is moving forward. With such monumental shifts created by new laws and administrative efforts, there are both intended and unintended consequences to the clinical research industry. This session examines how the changes in overall healthcare initiatives directly or indirectly affect the clinical research in the United States.

REGULATIONS AND ETHICS OF EHR / BIG DATA RESEARCH IN HEALTHCARE

There are research and privacy regulations governing the use of healthcare data for research purposes. Also, what's legal from a federal/state/local level may have ethical issues that need to be addressed. This session provides the caution points but primarily takes a "how can we" approach to these parameters to achieve research goals yet offer optimal protections.

PHYSICIAN PAYMENT SUNSHINE: A RAY OF HOPE OR A DEEPLY FLAWED LAW?

Enacted as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Open Payments (formerly known as the "Physician Payment Sunshine Act") is in full swing and causing quite a stir. This session begins with an overview of the regulations and moves on to discuss the impact on the health care / research industry and what to prepare for.
