Pew Urges House Caucus to Focus on Antibiotics Health IT Medical Devices

The Pew Charitable Trusts sent a letter July 26 to the House Health Care Innovation Caucus urging members to prioritize three issues: better stewardship of antibiotics, improved interoperability among electronic health record systems, and tracking of unique medical device identifiers in insurance claim forms. The letter responds to a request for information from the bipartisan caucus on how to improve the quality and safety of patient care.
