We welcome submissions on both the broad conceptual questions described above and more specific policy issues, including:

  • Patient access to medical records (including comprehensive electronic health records that span providers and institutions)

  • Transparency of medical bills and billing practices from institutions and insurers

  • Transparency in drug pricing (especially in light of legislative proposals seeking information regarding how companies set prices)

  • Conflict of interest disclosure and management (among clinicians, researchers, health agency advisory committees, etc.)

  • “Report cards,” online reviews, and other rating systems for health care institutions and providers (including accuracy, metrics, and utility)

  • Medical error and apology laws

  • Proper scope of informed consent disclosures in clinical care and research (e.g., provider characteristics, cost, available data, etc.)

  • Data sharing in clinical care and research (aggregate/individual, identified/de-identified; for purposes of replication, identification of trends, public health, national security, etc.)

  • Return of results to clinical trial participants

  • Mechanisms to facilitate patient and consumer understanding, use, and engagement with the information disclosed

  • HIPAA and similar laws as facilitators or inhibitors of transparency

  • Potential implications of transparency for discrimination

  • Food and drug labeling (and other consumer-focused disclosures)

  • Public health disclosures (e.g., lead in water and exposure to other environmental toxins)

  • New approaches to transparency not yet attempted in health policy contexts

Please note that this list is not meant to be exhaustive; we hope to receive abstracts related to the conference’s general theme even if a particular topic was not specifically listed here. However, proposals that lack a clear linkage to all three aspects of the conference – health/health care, transparency, and either law or ethics will not be considered.  Papers that focus on ethics should include substantial discussion of policy implications.  Relatedly, law will be treated broadly to include governmental policy decisions more generally. Successful abstracts will propose or outline an argument/position, rather than merely stating a topic.

In an effort to encourage interdisciplinary and international dialogue, we welcome submissions from legal scholars and lawyers, of course, but also from bioethicists, philosophers, clinicians, medical researchers, public health practitioners, behavioral economists, government officials and staff, international scholars and regulators discussing how their systems have handled these issues in ways that the US may learn from, and others who have a meaningful contribution to make on this topic.  We welcome submissions from advocacy organizations, think tanks, and others outside academia, but emphasize that this is a scholarly conference, and abstracts/papers will be held to academic standards of argumentation and support.
