Wright Speaks at ABA Antitrust Law Forum

Professor Joshua Wright was a speaker at the November 17 ABA Section of Antitrust Law Fall Forum held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Appearing on a panel entitled "Healthcare: Accountable Care Organizations," Wright and fellow panelists discussed the authorization of accountable health care organizations intended to enable progress under the new healthcare reform law in both improving access to healthcare and also making the system more efficient. Specific emphasis of the discussion was on whether antitrust standards should apply, or whether public policy concerns warrant a more lenient review.

Joining Wright on the panel were Fiona M. Scott-Morton, Deputy Assistant Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice, Antitrust Division; The Honorable J. Thomas Rosch, Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission; and Lawrence Wu, NERA Inc.
