A number of Congressional panels have held hearings this month on health policy issues, including the following:
- A House Ways and Means Committee hearing on Affordable Care Act implementation and the FY 2016 HHS budget request;
- A Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee hearing on “Health Information Exchange: A Path Towards Improving the Quality and Value of Health Care for Patients”;
- A House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing on “Medicaid Program Integrity: Screening Out Errors, Fraud, and Abuse”; and
- A Senate Judiciary Committee hearing entitled “Rewriting the Law: Examining the Process That Led to the ObamaCare Subsidy Rule.”
Looking ahead, the HELP Committee has scheduled a June 16 hearing to discuss what HHS can do to improve electronic health record user experience.
