Podcast interviews with health policy experts on timely subjects.

The Healthcare Policy Podcast website features audio interviews with healthcare policy experts on timely topics.

An online public forum routinely presenting expert healthcare policy analysis and comment is lacking. While other healthcare policy website programming exists, these typically present vested interest viewpoints or do not combine informed policy analysis with political insight or acumen. Since healthcare policy issues are typically complex, clear, reasoned, dispassionate discussion is required. These podcasts will attempt to fill this void.

Among other topics this podcast will address:
•Implementation of the Affordable Care Act
•Other federal Medicare and state Medicaid health care issues
•Federal health care regulatory oversight, moreover CMS and the FDA
•Healthcare research
•Private sector healthcare delivery reforms including access, reimbursement and quality issues
•Public health issues including the social determinates of health

Listeners are welcomed to share their program comments and suggest programming ideas.

Interesting and in-depth

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying these episodes. I especially like the background and context setting that Niall does every episode. Looking forward to hearing more topics from industry experts. I haven’t found this podcast to be particularly biased, but it’s probably a pitfall of the “single interviewee” concept—it’d be nice to do some of these topics with a panel with varying perspectives.

Not what I was hoping for

I was looking for a podcast that gave informative updates about the US healthcare and as a manager or a doctors office something to lee me in the loop. Some interviews were interesting but not what I was looking for. It’s very progressive, and topics are pretty niche from a pro big-government point of view.

Another liberal echo chamber

This is not really a podcast about healthcare policy. It is a political podcast aimed at disparaging Republicans, President Trump, the wealthy, and anyone else deemed undesirable by the liberal elite in
America. However, if you are a social justice warrior and it stepping out what privilege, redistributing the will of the greedy one percent, then this is the podcast for you.
