Later this month, the Federal Trade Commission will hold a two-day public workshop in Washington that examines health care competition. According to the agency, the purpose of the meetings is to "study certain activities and trends that may affect competition in the evolving health care industry." Among other topics, the FTC workshop will explore professional regulation of health care provider innovations in health care delivery, advancements in health care technology, measuring and assessing health care quality, and price transparency of health care services.

"The Federal Trade Commission seeks to better understand the competitive dynamics of evolving health care product and service markets," according to the agency. "Information obtained during this workshop will enrich the Commission’s knowledge in this critical sector of the economy and thereby support the Commission’s enforcement, advocacy, and consumer education efforts."
