We are focused on driving a smarter health care system focused on the quality – not quantity – of care. The health care law includes tools to increase transparency, avoid costly mistakes and hospital readmissions, keep patients healthy, and encourage new payment and care delivery models.
Health information technology helps providers better coordinate care, which can improve patients’ health and save money at the same time.
Making health data more accurate, available and secure allows innovators and entrepreneurs to use it for discovering innovative applications, products, and services to benefit the public.
