The Department of Health and Human Services seeks public comment on a planned initiative to develop a workgroup “to facilitate constructive, high-level dialogue between HHS leadership and those focused on innovating and investing in the health care industry.” Specifically, HHS seeks comment on how best to structure the workgroup or other forms of interaction to “spur investment, increase competition, accelerate innovation, and allow capital investment in the health care sector to have a more significant impact on the health and wellbeing of Americans.” The request for information will be published in tomorrow’s Federal Register with comments accepted for 30 days.
