New Safety & Quality Proposal from America's Health Insurance Plans

The AHIP's Board of Directors issued a press release on its proposal "Setting A Higher Bar":

The plan calls for the development of a new entity to compare the safety and efficacy of medical procedures and technologies, advocates steps to promote transparency of health care information and speed the adoption of best practices, and calls for the creation of a new patient-centered dispute resolution mechanism.

“Improving the safety and quality of care will allow the nation to more quickly provide coverage to all Americans,” said Karen Ignagni, President and CEO of AHIP. “We can enhance the value of the nation’s investment in health care and ensure that patients receive the right care at the right time in the right setting.”
