Health Policy News

Several things complicate the area of health policy in America. This includes cost, the multiple layers of government that are involved, and the demands of citizens. The Wiser daily health policy news email will help you navigate these issues to stay as informed as possible. There is no single definition of health policy in the United States. A more accurate representation is that it is a range of laws, regulations and initiatives that govern the way health care is delivered in the country. Organizations and individuals at local, state and national level are involved, along with companies, including some of America's largest. Issues that will be important in the future include disease prevention rather than cure, the aging population, and the rising costs of treatments. The politics surrounding the health care reforms introduced by President Obama still dominate much of the debate. And you can keep up with it all through the Wiser daily health policy news email.
