The eHealth Initiative (eHI) recently launched the “eHealth Initiative 2020 Roadmap a public-private collaboration to help guide the transformation of the U.S. healthcare system by 2020. With the help and support of a wide array of leading healthcare associations, organizations, and federal agencies, the roadmap is going to propose key policy recommendations to implement at a federal level and will detail actions for the private sector to use to help transform healthcare.
“Health reform calls for transformation to a value-based interoperable system, but there is no direction on how to transition from the current work processes and systems. Clinicians, payers, and providers are in dire need of leadership to help transform delivery systems and control cost,” said Jennifer Covich Bordenick, CEO of eHI.” The goal for our new initiative is to craft a multi-stakeholder solution that coordinates the efforts of both the public and private sector so that we can make this transition successfully.”
The Roadmap will be developed over the next six months through a series of surveys, webinars, executive roundtables, and events with key constituencies shaping the future of the healthcare system. Individuals are welcome to complete the survey, participate in upcoming events, and provide general feedback.
The 2020 Roadmap will focus on identifying a sustainable path for meaningful use, how to promote interoperable systems, how to transform care delivery, and how to balance innovation and privacy.
Several advisors representing stakeholders will lead the Roadmap activities such as John Glaser, PhD, CEO Health Services at Siemens, Christopher Ross MD, CIO, at Mayo Clinic, eHi Board of Directors, Susan Turney, MD, CEO, Medical Group Management Association, Micky
Tripathi, PhD, President and CEO Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative, and Joseph Touey, Senior VP for North American Pharmaceuticals, Information Technology, and GlaxoSmithKline.
