VII. Key Issues: Regulation & Reform >> C. Health Reform >> Health IT (last updated 5.24.14)
See Health IT under Cost Containment for news and evidence on the benefits and costs of a full range of HIT innovations for which there is real-world evidence even if their purpose or impact might be quality improvement at the expense of cost containment. This section is restricted to discussion of federal and state health reform policy proposals related to HIT that are under discussion and not yet adopted or implemented. This includes ideas that may have been adopted in other countries or other settings (e.g., large health plans, VA health system), but that have been proposed to be significantly expanded to other U.S. populations under comprehensive health reform.
