News and FYI
Government Health IT reports the Federal Communications Commission released its U. S. Broadband connection plan with important recommendations affecting healthcare delivery. According to Government Health IT, one example from the healthcare chapter in the plan is "...the FCC plan expressly supports changes to reimbursement methods so that health care providers will be assured of getting paid for conducting electronic health services."
Government Health IT further reports:
"The Federal Communications Commission formally adopted and forwarded to Congress a plan to significantly upgrade U.S. broadband connections that could greatly boost the adoption rate of health IT."
"The FCC’s health care recommendations are collected under four titles:
-- Create appropriate incentives for e-care utilization;
-- Modernize regulation to enable health IT adoption;
-- Unlock the value of data (which includes interoperability standards and patient access to electronic health care data);
-- Ensure sufficient connectivity for health care delivery locations."
