Nora Belcher is back to give us updates on what the Legislature did, is doing, and is going to do.

Nora Belcher is the Executive Director of the Texas e-Health Alliance, a non-profit advocacy group that she started in 2009 to give health information technology stakeholders a voice in public policy. The Texas e-Health Alliance serves as the state's leading advocate, from local communities to the national level, for the use of information technology to improve the health care system for patients. She is widely considered to be one of the state’s leading experts in digital health care, having worked on the issue for over 20 years in a variety of roles. During the 2021 Texas legislative session, Ms. Belcher took a leadership role in the passage of HB 4, which makes many of the telemedicine and telehealth flexibilities established as part of the state’s COVID-19 response a permanent part of the state’s regulatory structure. Ms. Belcher holds a bachelor’s degree in government from the University of Texas at Austin.
