There’s a Better Way Episode 3

Healthcare, Tech and Capitol Hill

“The information exchange, data analytics, interoperability and health IT parts of what we do … it’s very inspiring, because our system wouldn’t operate the way it should if we didn’t have the data being exchanged responsibly.”

In this episode, Melanie sits down with Tina Grande, the Executive Vice President for Policy at the Healthcare Leadership Council. In her role, Tina helps to advocate for consumer-centered healthcare reform, emphasizing the value of private-sector innovation as well as public-private partnership.

During their discussion, Melanie and Tina dig deeper into Tina’s remarkable career at the intersection of healthcare, technology and national policy. Tina also shares her perspective on the mission and successes of the Council, what inspires her, and the key priorities she believes policymakers and healthcare leaders should keep front and center in the months and years ahead.
