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:
â€¢Implementation of the Affordable Care Act
â€¢Other federal Medicare and state Medicaid health care issues
â€¢Federal health care regulatory oversight, moreover CMS and the FDA
â€¢Private sector healthcare delivery reforms including access, reimbursement and quality issues
â€¢Public health issues including the social determinates of health
Listeners are welcomed to share their program comments and suggest programming ideas.

Exactly what I was looking for.
This podcast is heavy on facts and policy background and not necessarily and opinion show and has limited political commentary. As they say “just the facts ma’am”. This is exactly what I wanted to find. The interviewer and guests are obviously knowledgeable and experts in the field.
Informative and Interesting
Every episode is a new topic and I enjoy that. Episodes introduce new people and ideas. Ethical issues with the current system are commonly discussed. Very enlightening. If you like to think critically about current healthcare topics then you will probably enjoy this podcast.
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.
