HIA responded to the House Budget Committee Health Care Task Force’s request for information (RFI) studying the drivers of health care spending and exploring solutions resulting in better health outcomes.
HIA highlighted several policy areas must be addressed to accomplish these priorities including:
- Harnessing the power of AI in health care
- Making telehealth a permanent option for Medicare beneficiaries
- Supporting the appropriate use of wearable technology and remote patient monitoring
- Ensuring an interoperable, private, and secure system of health care information for providers, payers, researchers, and patients
Our comments urged the Task Force to balance Congress’s ability to create new laws and requirements with Congress’s duty to oversee the administration’s implementation of current laws and authorities.
