Biopower, Market Power and Surveillance Capitalism: Healthcare Data and the End of Capitalism?
How will data-driven mergers in health care affect health outcomes? Will they allow providers to identify best practices in preventive medicine and improve consumers' well-being by motivating them to adopt healthier habits? Or will they stifle competition, extract higher prices for consumers and exacerbate existing health inequities?
This year's Jaharis Symposium, co-sponsored by the Jaharis Health Law Institute and the Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT®), will explore the role that antitrust tools should play in consumer health protection.
Featured speaker Max Miller is an assistant attorney general in the Consumer Protection Division of the Iowa Attorney General's Office. He enforces state and federal antitrust statutes, including investigating hospital mergers, litigating price-fixing and other anticompetitive conduct in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as analyzing mergers involving the intersection of data and health insurance. He will discuss the transformative power of data collection and analytic technology in his talk: Biopower, Market Power and Surveillance Capitalism: Healthcare Data and the End of Capitalism?
This year's symposium will be presented online and in person. Online participants will receive a link to view the presentation just ahead of the event. In-person registration is capped at 70 attendees. All attendees must comply with DePaul University's COVID-19 policy, which requires attendees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have proof of a negative COVID-19 test dated no earlier than 72 hours prior to the program. Documentation will be reviewed at check-in for the event for all guests except DePaul faculty, staff and students.
In addition, all attendees must wear a face mask at all times while inside any DePaul University building. Cloth masks alone do not meet the university’s mask requirement. DePaul highly recommends using N95 or KN95 masks. If you do not have a N95 or KN95 mask, you may double mask with a cloth mask layered over a surgical mask. A well-fitted surgical mask by itself is acceptable but not preferable. These rules are subject to change in accordance with public health guidance.
DePaul College of Law is an accredited MCLE provider, and this event is eligible for up to 7 CLE credit hours.
