Aligning Health IT and Health Reform: Achieving an Information-Driven Health Care System

10th Floor
Center for American Progress

1333 H St., NW
Washington, DC

Health IT is a critical foundation of successful health care reform that can help the nation achieve cost and quality goals through delivery system innovation. A July 15 forum with The Markle Foundation, the Center for American Progress and the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform discussed strategies for aligning health IT investments and health reform efforts as they took a close look at implications and opportunities for implementation.

The three organizations have been working with a wide array of collaborators to develop criteria for the “meaningful use” of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s (ARRA) health IT investments to increase their sustainability and foster and support health system transformation. Featured speakers at the event included National Coordinator for Health Information Technology David Blumenthal and Engelberg Center Director Mark McClellan, among other distinguished guests.
