10:00 – 11:00 – Blockchain: How it Works and How it Could Disrupt Healthcare
Jennifer Boese, Clifton Larson Allen
Blockchain. We’ve all likely heard of it, read about it, or been told it could revolutionize health care. But what does it really mean for the industry, and when will we start seeing this technology? In this session, you’ll learn the fundamentals of blockchain, key health care use cases, and barriers to adoption.
11:00 – 12:00 – Cutting Through the Haze on Recreational and Medical Marijuana Laws
Jay Dade, Polisinelli
This session will provide a review of state laws allowing recreational and/or medical marijuana usage and how such usage impacts workplace policies. After this session, attendees will be able to define potential pitfalls for employers operating in states that allow for recreational and medical marijuana usage, including multi-state employers operating in states with differing usage laws and how such employers can/should structure their workplace policies accordingly.
