06 Dec Task Force Urges Continued Momentum for Value Payment
The HCTTF is eager to work with the incoming Trump-Pence Administration and new Congress to achieve sustainable change in value-based care, which requires alignment between the private and public sectors. No other single policy initiative holds more promise to moderate entitlement spending and to free up needed discretionary resources for other national priorities, like infrastructure and defense. The next four years will be a critical time for industry and consumers, working with the new Administration and Congress, to achieve the benefits of a competitive health care system that provides lower cost, high quality, and a better patient experience. The HCTTF strongly urges the incoming Administration and Congress to express their support for payment reform and value-based health care and to urge the industry to continue its important evolution to a modern payment and care delivery system that provides high value, affordable health care through a competitive marketplace.
