D.C. Direct: Weekly policy intelligence

D.C. Direct: Keeping you up to date on federal health policy and politics.

What happens in Washington will impact virtually every health care organization.

Congress and the Administration debate significant, paradigm-changing health care policies that impact how care is delivered, financed, and priced; how we improve public health; and how to incorporate new tools and technologies to improve access, equity, and affordability.

That’s why Leavitt Partners offers a suite of integrated services that help our clients anticipate and interpret key federal health policy, political, and personnel developments in Washington, D.C.

Organizations seeking to influence the outcome of policy debates and thrive in a new regulatory environment must have the most current information, informed by partners who understand the legislative and regulatory processes, as well as the underlying policy under consideration.

Transforming Information to Insights

Leavitt Partners’ D.C. Direct services not only help clients understand what key federal health policy developments occur each week, but also explain why they matter. We serve our clients with:

  • Insights on the latest headlines and behind-the-scenes changes in the Administration and Congress
  • Guidance on how to navigate key federal health personnel, policy, and political decisions that will ultimately affect every health care stakeholder.
  • The distillation of complicated, convoluted sets of information into meaningful, concise, and actionable insights. These insights help clients better understand the present and stay well informed to prepare for and shape the future.

We Give You So Many Ways to Stay Informed

Federal Insights Briefs

Once or more per week, we provide analysis of the most important federal health policy developments coming out of Congress and the Administration. We help you understand what actions are most relevant and provide insights on why these actions matter. On the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, Congress’s health policy activities may take the form of legislation, oversight actions, or political developments. We provide context and analysis to explain how these policy developments connect the broader trends shaping the evolution of American health care.

As major issues develop, we produce written, detailed policy briefs on specific federal health policy issues that are poised to have a significant impact on health care stakeholders.
