Washington, D.C. – On Wednesday, December 3, at 10:00AM ET, the Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Health Innovation Initiative will hold a policy forum with senior leaders from government and the private sector on bipartisan efforts to advance a risk-based regulatory framework for health IT that promotes innovation, protects patient safety and avoids regulatory duplication. The day-long discussion will also highlight progress and stakeholder views on governance, standards and principles for reporting for a new oversight framework for health information technology (IT).
Over the past year, BPC has convened hundreds of stakeholders and experts to develop principles and recommendations for an oversight framework for health IT and is pleased to see several areas of alignment with recent legislation, as well as the Administration’s draft Health IT plan. See the report here.
