Joseph Antos is the Wilson H. Taylor Scholar in Health Care and Retirement Policy at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a prominent DC think tank, where his research focuses on the economics of health policy — including the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, the uninsured, and the overall reform of the health care system and its financing. He also studies the impact of health care expenditures on federal budget policy.
In this keynote, he will cover the economics of population health during a period of policy and political turmoil. He'll discuss the ACA repeal efforts, how the ACA permanently changed the U.S. healthcare landscape, and how value-based care programs are transforming the way healthcare providers interact with patients.
