Interviewer as Interviewee: David Introcaso Answers Listeners' Questions (May 27th) (Part I)

Listen Now

Since I've received and answered questions via email concerning podcast interviews and related health care policy questions over the past eight years, I thought it might be it might be useful to attempt answering listeners via a podcast program.  This podcast addresses questions I received via my solicitation a few months ago.  Joe DiLauro, the gentleman whom introduces the podcast and thanks listeners after each interview, and moreover my audio engineer, poses the questions.

During Part I of this discussion, approximately 22 minutes, I address questions concerning the current COVID-19 pandemic and questions concerning health care policy specifics related to Republican and Democratic party approaches to health care reform, Congressional functioning and policy management by Medicare program regulators.    

As for my bio . . . , over approximately the past 25 years I have done health care delivery, financing, policy research and evaluation in Washington DC.  My bio includes having served as Health Policy Adviser to the U.S. House of Representatives Majority Leader, Rep. Steny Hoyer.  I also spent eight years working in the US Department of Health and Human Services serving as the Evaluation Officer for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and as a Public Health Analyst in the Office of Assistant  Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE).  I have acute care experience having worked at DC General and post-acute experience having worked with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.   My consulting clients have ranged from the American Heart Association and the American Public Health Association to UnitedHealth Group.  Among other awards I received a three-year W. K. Kellogg National Leadership Fellowship.  I have taught as a adjunct at Georgetown and at George Washington universities and over the past eight years, beyond producing over 200 interviews via this podcast, have authored over 50 health policy-related essays.  My BS, MA and Ph.D. degrees were earned at Rutgers and Arizona State.

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