NTOCC Submits Comments to House Energy & Commerce Committee On Innovation in Health IT

Posted on 6/23/2014 by NTOCC ® in Public Policy Updates

Last week NTOCC submitted comments to the House Energy & Commerce Committee in response to a call for ideas on how the federal government can support technology adoption in our health care programs for the express and explicit purpose of reducing costs and increasing the overall quality and efficiency of the programs.

NTOCC’s Health Innovation Task Force developed the attached comments which highlighted several examples of how current technology is improving transitions of care and the barriers that still remain to utilizing technology to its fullest capacity. The integration of telehealth into the delivery of care will continue to be a focus of the Committee. We look forward to working with our members on these important issues.
