The Network for Excellence in Health Innovation this week released a roadmap for reinventing U.S. health care. The report, to which AHA contributed, calls for a series of steps in technology development, health care payment, regulations, workforce and other areas. Among other areas, the report calls for new payment models to be adopted by Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurers to encourage technology-enabled innovation in health care delivery that increases access and convenience; and training of health care workers to operate virtually and in multidisciplinary teams. The report has been published as an e-book and paperback on Amazon. An executive summary of the report can be downloaded for free.
