HHS Deputy Secretary Recognizes Grand Rapids Leaders for Improving Quality and Value in Health Care
Date:3/18/2008

e, four of the communities will begin implementing the demonstration, with the remainder beginning in 2009.

The EHR demonstration project is a major step toward the President's goal of most Americans having access to a secure, interoperable electronic health record by 2014.

For more information about the EHR demonstration project, visit http://www.cms.hhs.gov/DemoProjectsEvalRpts/downloads/2008_Electronic_Healt h_Records_Demonstration.pdf

This initiative is also part of HHS' bold vision for health care reform built on the four cornerstones of value-driven health care. These include: adopting interoperable health information technology; measuring and publishing quality information to enable consumers to make better decisions about their providers and treatment options; measuring and publishing price information to give consumers information they need to make better decisions on purchasing health care; and promoting incentives for high-quality, efficient delivery of care.
