The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is seeking 15 industry stakeholders to join a summit responsible for drafting the Health Quality Roadmap required by President Trump’s recent Executive Order on health care transparency. The purpose of the roadmap is to align quality measures across Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, the health insurance marketplace, the Military Health System and the Veterans Affairs health system. Specifically, the summit will review quality programs across HHS agencies and determine how they can be better evaluated and adapted, with an emphasis on patient outcomes. Aligning quality measures within the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services alone has seemingly been an ongoing challenge.
HHS Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan and patient safety expert Peter Pronovost will chair the summit, and HHS will accept nominations for the 15 industry positions through July 31, 2019.
