Senate HELP Committee Releases Draft Legislation on Health IT Interoperability

The U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) released draft legislation compiling various health IT bills, including a revised iteration of the American College of Radiology (ACR)-supported Transparent Ratings on Usability and Security to Transform Information Technology (TRUST IT) Act. The committee held a series of interoperability-focused committee hearings last year.

ACR Informatics Commission leaders and Government Relations staff are currently reviewing the draft legislation and compiling feedback to inform the next iteration of the bill. Interested ACR members should contact Michael Peters, ACR Director of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs, at 202.223.1670 / mpeters@acr.org to provide input.
