  • Affordable Care Act’s Impact on Health IT: A Bipartisan Perspective Authors: Janet Marchibroda, MBA, Chair, Bipartisan Policy Center Health IT Initiative
    Recognizing that health information technology (IT) plays a critical role in improving the quality and cost-effectiveness of care, the Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Task Force on Delivery System Reform and Health IT released a set of recommendations for the most effective use of health IT dollars to support delivery system and payment reforms to achieve improved health, better health care, and reductions in the cost of care. Our keynote lunch speaker will summarize these recommendations to help you plan for the future.

    Is it worth all the effort? What are the tangible benefits being realized by patients, physicians, and health care professionals? How to best anticipate and overcome hurdles along the way?
