Cures 2.0 Next Steps

Holland & Knight Program
Senior Public Affairs Advisor Ethan Jorgensen-Earp hosted a webinar covering the latest version of the Cures 2.0 Act discussion draft, which aims to build upon 2015’s landmark 21st Century Cures Act. The bill includes more than 500 provisions to increase biomedical innovation and improve the delivery of breakthrough therapies. It also contains provisions to improve Medicare coverage of innovative technologies, increase diversity in clinical trials, expand the collection and use of real-world evidence by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), provide training and educational programs for caregivers, increase patient access to health information, and increase access to telehealth services. Most notably, the proposal would create a new federal research agency. This webinar explores how these solutions will hopefully advance into law over the next year and highlights the best ways to provide input on critical issues in the draft proposal.
