Healthcare is expected to be a top priority for many U.S. voters during the 2020 presidential election. Healthcare executives are charged with evaluating and re-shaping their 2020 strategic plans to address possible changes on the federal level. Healthcare executives are almost evenly split on the potential impact of the 2020 presidential election, with 24 percent of respondents expecting the election to have a negative effect and 22 percent expecting a positive effect, according to the Healthcare Industry Trends in 2020 by the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN). Some 54 percent reported they would expect a neutral impact from the election on the industry.
