Final Cures bill to get House vote Wednesday

The more we examine the new 21st Century Cures bill (the House is scheduled to vote on Wednesday), the more evidence we see of a new health IT architecture — for EHRs, in particular. While some Democratic critics view Cures as an industry vehicle to strip FDA of its regulatory powers, almost the opposite seems true of the health IT sections. Those parts — reflecting the handiwork of the many GOP doctor-legislators who helped shape them — contain many tools to get at better information exchange, and tight timelines for the ONC.
