AAHKS joined a number of other medical specialty societies in a letter addressed to Paul Ryan, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives last week. The letter thanked him for supporting the 21st Century Cures bill. The letter stated, “The ultimate goal of both the House and the Senate bills is to accelerate innovation, boost research, streamline drug and device approvals, and enhance health information technology (HIT) interoperability. We believe these things individually and combined will ultimately improve patient care and improve outcomes. They will also increase the quality, safety, and efficiency of health care delivery.” Read the letter.
