Health IT Now Executive Director Robert Horne today issued the following statement on President-elect Trump’s appointment of House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA) as Department of Health and Human Services Secretary.
“Doctor Price has long advocated for health care reforms that will ultimately encourage the continued growth of health IT. Price’s willingness to engage in thoughtful discussion and debate on complicated health care policies alongside his expertise in the field will serve him well as the health care community continues to embrace advances in science and technology. Health IT Now and its members have a wealth of ideas for what IT in health care should look like today and in the years to come. We look forward to sharing our vision with Price and leaders of the new administration and Congress and continue moving forward with innovation in health care.”
