Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network

eHealthInitiativeOn March 25, 2015, eHealth Initiative (eHI) CEO Jennifer Covich Bordenick attended the White House kick-off of the “Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network.” Bordenick joined 100 other top health care luminaries invited to the White House to support the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network initiative and hear remarks from President Barack Obama, HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell and other leaders from the Administration. The initiative aims to bring together public and private sector actors to build on the Affordable Care Act’s efforts to move health care toward a system that provides the best care for patients and pays providers based on the quality, rather than the quantity, of care they give patients. It also builds upon HHS’s goal of tying 30 percent of payments to quality and value through alternative payment models by 2016 and 50 percent by 2018 under new approaches to paying for health care created by the Affordable Care Act.

eHI CEO, Jen Covich Bordenick issued the following statement concerning this event:

“eHI applauds the President and HHS for their leadership on transforming care, and for setting clear objectives that will help the nation make the complex transition to a better health care system as smoothly as possible. This new effort fits well with eHI’s bipartisan, multi-stakeholder mission and with our 2020 Roadmap activities to develop and support action steps that improve healthcare. Health information technology and the eHI 2020 Roadmap are linchpins in this process and align with what the White House and HHS aim to achieve with the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network.”
