Emerging Health Care Competition and Consumer Issues: Competitive Significance of Health Care Quality Information

FTC Headquarters 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20580 | Directions & Nearby

Room 432

Event Description

The Federal Trade Commission will hold two roundtables on emerging health care competition and consumer issues.  They will focus on two distinct areas in which competition and consumer protection policies are implicated: (1) competition among health care providers based on quality information; and (2) competition provided by developing an abbreviated regulatory approval pathway for follow-on biologic drugs.


The event is free and open to the public. All attendees will be required to display a current driver's license or other valid form of photo identification. FTC Headquarters are accessible to people with disabilities. If you need an accommodation related to a disability, please call Carrie McGlothlin, (202) 326-3388.
