Episode 40: Docs on the Hill

by Aledade

Two weeks ago, several primary care physicians traveled from their communities to Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. They spent an entire day meeting with policymakers and helping them understand what it’s like to be in a physician-led ACO. On this episode, Farzad Mostashari (@Farzad_MD), CEO of Aledade, and Travis Broome (@Travis_Broome), Vice President of Policy at Aledade, sit down with Dr. Karl Schwabe from Pennsylvania and Dr. Richard Card from Virginia to learn more about their first experience on Capitol Hill and to discuss how policy decisions get made — decisions that affect every healthcare provider in the US.
