Sustaining Innovation to Build a More Responsive, Cost Effective H&HS System

Date: November 29, 2016||   0  Comments

Healthcare IT Connect is currently planning a number of sessions at the 2017 State HIT Connect Summit, March 28-29 specifically to explore the policy and fiscal levers that could be utilized by the Trump administration to ‘repeal and replace’ or ‘modify’ the Affordable Care Act as well as to assess the likely impact on the State H&HS transformation programs including the funding for HIT and the modernization of Medicaid and integrated H&HS systems.

Transition sessions will include discussions on strategic planning issues including:

• Exploring the impact of replacement options for the Affordable Care Act, associated timelines and what this means for states?

• If Medicaid block granting is introduced, how could states sustain H&HS innovation efforts?

• What will Medicaid IT modernization look like and how could CMS’ Modularization Initiative be impacted?

• Will the A-87 Cost Allocation Exception exist beyond it’s current expiration in 2018?

• What will be the future for the State Innovation Model (SIM) Program?

• What will be the role for Value Based Care, could the MACRA Law be impacted?

• What support will be provided for Veterans populations and behavioural health integration/connectivity?

• What will be Trump administration’s approach to solving interoperability challenges and what will is the vision for the Health IT Policy and Standards Committees?

• Will there be a renewed focus on Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring?

• Cybersecurity – what direction will renewed focus take?
