The House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee today held a hearing on innovative practices and technology in health care. In a statement submitted to the subcommittee, AHA highlighted how hospitals and health systems are using technology and new care delivery models to enhance the patient experience and add value. “These innovations are allowing hospitals to meet patients’ needs for greater convenience and online access,” AHA said. “However, updates are needed to legal and regulatory structures to continue to enhance the consumer experience, better coordinate care, and allow for greater use of technology.” Specifically, AHA urged Congress and the administration to expand access to telehealth, ease participation in new care models, complete the broadband infrastructure, and reduce regulatory burden.
