Changes wrought by the Affordable Care Act, along with other legislative and regulatory developments, have sweeping implications for healthcare providers, insurers and investors as well as consumers. The Business of Health Care channels the knowledge and insights of experts from Wharton and elsewhere to examine the effects of these revolutionary changes and discuss what they will mean for all participants in the U.S. healthcare system. Hear interviews with venture capitalists and entrepreneurs developing cutting edge treatments and technologies, policymakers pushing for change, and dedicated medical professionals working with new payment and delivery models.

The Business of Health Care airs Tuesdays at Noon EST (9AM PST) only on SiriusXM 111.
