POLITICO Pro Health Care Briefing: Scope of Practice in the ACA Era

Jun 20, 2016

POLITICO's Pro Health Care team convened leading experts to examine the policy debate over broadening and enhancing the health care workforce, particularly in primary care, mental health, and aging. How can the industry address these unmet primary care needs? Will moving towards a more team-based care model breakdown scope of practice barriers? What are the current state trends? What federal policies can help?

Gene Rich, senior fellow and director of Mathematica's Center on Health Care Effectiveness, participated in the event. Watch the video.
